AHCJ Fellowships for Reporting on Health Care Performance

AHCJ Reporting Fellowships on Health Care Performance, managed by the Association of Health Care Journalists and supported by The Commonwealth Fund, allow health care journalists to pursue significant reporting projects related to the U.S. health care system. They can be local or national in scope, or a little of both—examining, say, an aspect of the Affordable Care Act playing out in your community or subject specialty, the impact of particular evidence-based treatments on health outcomes, or an analysis of a health care organization's performance using public data sets. Fellows pursue the projects with the support of their newsrooms or freelance outlets, which commit to publish or air the work. Guidance is provided by AHCJ fellowship leaders through customized seminars on health care systems, conference calls, and e-mail consultations.

The fellowship covers the cost of attending the seminars and AHCJ's 2013 conferences. A project allowance of up to $4,000 helps defray the cost of field reporting, health data analysis, and other project-related research. In addition, each fellow receives a $2,500 fellowship award upon the successful completion of his or her project.

The application deadline is November 9. For more information, visit
