The Robert Wood Johnson (RWJ) Foundation Health Policy Fellowship Program is increasing the number of fellows from six to eight and calling on behavioral scientists to apply in greater numbers.
The fellowship program, funded by the RWJ Foundation and conducted by the Institute of Medicine (IOM), helps mid-career health professionals to develop their leadership abilities in health policy and management.
Fellows complete a three-month orientation in public policy in Washington, D.C., then work in the executive or congressional branch advising decision-makers, crafting new legislation and revising programs concerning their field of interest.
IOM will accept applications for 2002-03 fellows until Nov. 16. Contact the program office at (202) 334-1506 or visit the Web site at www.nas.edu/rwj.
