International Health Policy Fellowship

The NAM International Health Policy Fellowship program is designed for early- to mid-career scholars in the fields of bioethics, medical ethics and law, economics and health policy, and health care to experience and participate in health care or public health studies that improve care and access to care for patients in domestic and global health care systems.

The NAM established this program in 2017, recognizing the need to build a pipeline of health policy scholars who are trained in bridging science with policy to put forth informed solutions to some of the world’s most critical health challenges.

Selected fellows participate in a two-year fellowship with 25 percent time residency in Washington, D.C., while maintaining their current position and responsibilities at their home institution. The fellowship’s D.C. residency portion consists of a concentrated three-month period at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to learn about the organization’s activities. Fellows actively learn about specific National Academies’ activities during the fellowship and select a National Academies report to examine based on their home country.
