Canadian Harkness Fellowship Deadline Extended

The Commonwealth Fund, in collaboration with the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement (CFHI), invites applications from Canadian health services researchers and practitioners for the Harkness/CFHI Fellowships in Health Care Policy and Practice. The deadline for receipt of applications from Canada has been extended to March 11, 2013.

The Harkness Fellowships provide a unique opportunity for mid-career professionals—academic researchers, government policymakers, clinicians, hospital and insurance managers, and journalists from Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom—to spend up to 12 months in the U.S. studying a critical health policy issue, working with leading U.S. policy experts, and gaining in-depth knowledge of the health system in the U.S. and their home countries. Fellows also participate throughout the year in high-level policy briefings and leadership seminars with U.S. health care leaders.
