HSR&D and QUERI to Host AcademyHealth Delivery System Science Fellowship

October 8, 2015

AcademyHealth's Delivery System Science Fellowship (DSSF) offers a year-long learning opportunity for highly-qualified, post-doctoral researchers to gain more applied experience in a delivery system setting. As part of this unique fellowship experience, individuals with a background in health services research or related fields are placed within leading delivery systems to apply and enhance their analytic skills and obtain hands-on training and professional development opportunities. For the 2016 DSSF program, HSR&D and QUERI have partnered to participate as one of eight host sites.

Although the Fellows' exact role may vary based on their individual interests and institutional needs, each Fellow will have an opportunity to focus on:

  • Clinical, health services;
  • Quality improvement and implementation research studies;
  • And more.

To begin the 2016 application process, applicants are required to complete an Intent to Apply form. Once the form is submitted, candidates will receive a confirmation email with a link to the full application. The 2016 DSSF application submission period runs from October 1, 2015 to January 8, 2016 (5:00pm ET).
