The Delivery System Science Fellowship provides a year-long professional development opportunity for highly qualified, doctorally-prepared individuals to gain more applied experience in a delivery system setting.
The need to develop experiential-learning opportunities in delivery system settings was expressed as a specific recommendation emerging from the HSR Summit on data and methods convened by AcademyHealth in 2009. The concept of a fellowship focused on delivery system science was also defined as a priority by the AcademyHealth HSR Learning Consortium (a forum for employers, educators, and student leaders interested in advancing training in HSR) in the Consortium’s 2011 strategic plan. AcademyHealth's strategic plan further emphasizes a commitment
The goal of the fellowship is to provide hands-on training and professional opportunities for highly qualified researchers with a background in health services research (HSR) or related fields to enhance analytic skills and ultimately increase the capacity of the HSR workforce.
The fellowship is guided by an advisory committee which provides strategic direction for the fellowship and plays a key role in selecting Fellows.
The fellowship is a full-time, year-long position that takes place on site. While level of support and benefits will be determined by individual host sites, the minimum level of support will reflect National Research Service Awards stipend guidelines.
