The NCI/AcademyHealth Healthcare Delivery Research Visiting Scholars Program was launched in 2017 by the Healthcare Delivery Research Program of NCI in partnership with AcademyHealth to address key gaps and advance the field of cancer care delivery research.
This unique program offers mid-career researchers a year-long, funded part-time opportunity to contribute evidence and address cancer care challenges by conducting research and pursuing projects at the National Cancer Institute in Rockville, MD. The program provides individuals with protected time to develop new research directions that advance both their own career goals and the field.
