The Commonwealth Fund Mongan Fellowship in Minority Health Policy (formerly The Commonwealth Fund/Harvard University Fellowship in Minority Health Policy, est. 1996): Supported by The Commonwealth Fund, this unique fellowship is designed to prepare physicians for leadership roles in transforming health care delivery systems and promoting health policies and practices that improve access to high performance health care for vulnerable populations including racial and ethnic minorities and economically disadvantaged groups.  Under the auspices of the Minority Faculty Development Program (MFDP) at Harvard Medical School (HMS), up to five one-year fellowships will be awarded per year.  Fellows will complete academic work leading to a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and gain exposure to, and understanding of, major health issues facing vulnerable and disadvantaged populations through fellowship activities.  The Fellowship also offers a Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree at the Harvard Kennedy School to physicians already possessing an MPH. It is expected that the Fellowship will support the development of a cadre of physician leaders in health policy and practice who are well-trained academically and professionally in health policy, health care management, minority health and clinical medicine, as well as actively committed to creating high-performance health systems for vulnerable populations and to pursuing careers in public service.
The application deadline for the 2016-2017 Fellowship is December 15, 2015.

Jefferson Science Fellowship The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is pleased to announce a call for nominations and applications for the 2016 Jefferson Science Fellows program.  Initiated by the Secretary of State in 2003, this fellowship program engages the American academic science, technology, engineering and medical communities in the design and implementation of U.S. foreign policy. 
Jefferson Science Fellows (JSF) spend one year at the U.S. Department of State or the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) for an on-site assignment in Washington, D.C. that may also involve extended stays at U.S. foreign embassies and/or missions.
The fellowship is open to tenured, or similarly ranked, academic scientists, engineers and physicians from U.S. institutions of higher learning. Nominees/applicants must hold U.S. citizenship and will be required to obtain a security clearance.
The deadline for 2016-2017 program year applications/nominations is November 2, 2015. To learn more about the Jefferson Science Fellowship and to apply, visit the JSF website at: http://sites.nationalacademies.org/pga/jefferson/index.htm

P  R  I  D  E: PRograms to Increase Diversity Among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research
Applications are being accepted for the all-expense paid Summer Institute in Cardiovascular Genetic Epidemiology at Washington University in St Louis, School of Medicine. 
Eligible applicants are research-oriented junior-level faculty members or transitioning post-doctorate trainees from minority groups that are under-represented in the biomedical or health sciences, and are United States Citizens or Permanent Residents.  Research interests should be compatible with those of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) in the prevention of treatment of heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) disorders research; health disparities research; or relevant research methodologies and approaches specific to these areas.
This mentored program will address the difficulties experienced by junior investigators in establishing independent research programs and negotiating through the academic ranks. The desired outcome is to improve the recruitment and retention of faculty from disabled and underrepresented minority groups in the study of heart, lung, blood, and sleep disorders. 
Participants meet for 3-week sessions during two consecutive summers, with a short mid-year visit and an Annual Meeting for all PRIDE Mentees and Mentors across 6 programs and the NHLBI. The PRIDE program provides mentor-mentee partnerships with matching based on common research interests.
