A year-long fellowship program offering health services and policy researchers access to restricted NCHS data. This program is no longer offered.
Statistical information plays an important role in informing actions and policies to improve the health of individuals and communities. With this guiding principle, the National Center for Health Statistics and AcademyHealth developed the NCHS/AcademyHealth Health Policy Fellowship Program. After 20 successful years, AcademyHealth and NCHS are no longer offering this program, but will continue our partnership for the Data Visualization Challenge. Learn more about the Challenge here.
The NCHS/AcademyHealth Health Policy Fellowship Program was designed to encourage the use of NCHS data systems and programs by the health services research community in response to current health policy questions, and provided a basis for future health policy.
Each year, the program recruited one (1) fellow (preferably a senior investigator at the associate professor level, tenured or non-tenured) from the field of health services and policy research to conduct research on-site at NCHS for up to twelve months using the NCHS restricted data files, especially taking advantage of the Center’s linked data files. The duration of this appointment was approximately 12 months.
