Harkness Fellowships in Health Care Policy and Practice provide a unique opportunity for mid-career health services researchers and practitioners from New Zealand and other countries to spend up to 12 months in the United States, conducting original research and working with leading US health policy experts.
The fellowships are offered by The Commonwealth Fund, an American private foundation working toward a high performance health system.
Through its extensive network of contacts, the Fund places newly selected Fellows with experts at leading US universities, think tanks, health care organizations, integrated health care delivery systems and government agencies for the fellowship year. Fellows work with leading US experts to study a critical issue on the health policy agenda in both the US and their home country. A rich program of seminars organised by the Fund throughout the year further enhances the fellowship experience.
Fulbright New Zealand no longer administers the Harkness Fellowships in Health Care Policy and Practice in New Zealand. Please visit www.commonwealthfund.org for further information and application details.
