Fellowship Program Overview

The Integrated Fellowship is based at the Center for Education in Health Sciences, in the Institute for Public Health and Medicine (IPHAM) at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.  During the two-year fellowship, fellows enroll in a master’s degree program offered in The Graduate School (TGS) of Northwestern University.  A substantial part of the fellowship training is experientially achieved through strong mentoring relationships between fellows and distinguished faculty mentors.

This Integrated Fellowship draws upon faculty with research and mentorship expertise in Healthcare Quality and Safety Innovation, Healthcare Economics, Healthcare Equity, Maternal-Child Health, Healthcare Policy and Implementation, and Chronic Disease Care and Outcomes. Fellows can also collaborate with faculty and staff at the Center for Rehabilitation Outcomes Research (CROR) at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, the Center for Outcomes, Research and Education (CORE) and Center of Innovation for Complex Chronic Healthcare (CINCCH), VA HSR&D, Hines VA. Through IPHAM, fellows have access to faculty conducting research in the Centers for Patient-Centered Outcomes; Community Health; Engineering and Health; Behavior and Health; Global Health; and Aging, Health and Society. Additional key NU resources are the Biostatistical Collaboration Core, NU Bioinformatics Center, and well-established collaborations with numerous clinical departments (e.g., Anesthesia, Emergency Medicine, Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics, and Surgery).
