November 1st marks opening of recruitment for the 2017-2018 Health Policy Leadership Fellowship at Satcher Health Leadership Institute at Morehouse School of Medicine. The fellowship is a multi-disciplinary training program that prepares physicians and postdoctoral professionals for leadership roles promoting policies and practices to reduce disparities and advance health equity. Started in 2009, the program’s thirty graduates are taking leadership roles in academia, government agencies, health care, and community-based organizations across the country. The fellowship is uniquely focused at the intersections of leadership development, health policy, and health equity and is particularly interested in developing leaders from underserved, under-represented, and racial and ethnic minority populations with a strong commitment to health equity.
