LA Area Health Services Research Training Program Postdoctoral Fellowship
The LAAHSRTP postdoctoral fellowship is a joint initiative of the Department of Health Policy and Management at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, RAND Health, The USC Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics, and the VA Los Angeles Center for the Study of Healthcare Innovation, Implementation and Policy. It is supported by a T-32 grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. The program provides comprehensive training and experience to highly-qualified postdoctoral trainees so that they may effectively engage in and lead research and implementation activities aimed at improving the quality and efficiency of the U.S. health care system.
This one-year degree-granting fellowship is designed to prepare physician-leaders, particularly physicians from groups underrepresented in medicine, to become leaders who improve the health of disadvantaged and vulnerable populations through transforming health care delivery systems and promoting innovation in policies, practices and programs that address health equity and the social determinants of health. The program provides strong academic training and coursework, including an MPH or MPA, for highly qualified physicians. It enhances the leadership ability of physicians, offering them substantive knowledge in health policy and management, while creating a network of physician-leaders capable of advancing successfully among the public, nonprofit, and academic sectors.
