The Physicians Foundation recently launched a call for applicants for the Fellowship Program! New or early-career physicians are encouraged to apply by November 16.

With a focus on drivers of health (DOH), the Fellowship Program enhances physicians’ leadership skills so they can strengthen the physician-patient relationship, support medical practices’ sustainability and navigate the changing health care system. The fellow will develop and implement a project that supports physicians in their understanding of DOH and integration into medical practices.

Requirements include:

  • Open to physicians who are new or early-career in their practice.
  • Applicants must demonstrate experience with and/or interest in DOH, physician leadership, health policy, health equity and clinical/care delivery innovation.
  • Submit a program application with a current resume/CV and statement of intent that briefly describes how participation will be a transformative experience for you to learn how to make positive, constructive contributions to the medical profession in the future.

Receive two (2) letters of recommendation, one of which is recommended to be from the fellow’s state or county medical society.
