Objectives:

The specific objectives of this funding opportunity are to:

  • Support impact-oriented career paths and elevate the career readiness of individuals with a PhD in health services and policy research (HSPR) or related fields by supporting experiential learning opportunities in Canada outside of the traditional scholarly environment, enriched competency development (e.g., leadership, project management), and national cohort participation;
  • Expand and enrich the traditional post-doctoral training environment by engaging health system and related organizations in preparing a cadre of promising PhD graduates for successful careers;
  • Provide health system and related organizations with direct opportunities to realize and harness the benefits that PhD-trained individuals can bring to such organizations for improved decision- making.

Duration, amount, and partnership requirements:

Both one- and two-year fellowships will be offered:

  • One-year fellows will receive a fellowship stipend of $70,000 plus $10,000 for a professional development training and research allowance ($80,000 total).
  • Two-year fellows will receive a fellowship stipend of $70,000 per year plus a professional development training and research allowance of $15,000 total ($155,000 total over the two years).
  • For both one- and two-year fellowships, CIHR and its partners will contribute 70% of the total cost and the fellow’s host partner organization** will contribute 30%. 

Who should apply?

Eligibility is open to individuals who obtained their PhD degree in HSPR or related fields (e.g., public and population health, health economics, epidemiology, political science, etc.) within five years of the application deadline or will complete their PhD by the funding start date (September 1, 2017). Applicants are required to secure joint guidance from supervisors in a health system or related organization (the “host partner organization”), and an academic institution.

**How to find a host partner organization:

Over 30 organizations from across the country have already confirmed their interest and commitment to host Health System Impact Fellows. Applicants are encouraged to visit the Health System Impact Fellowship partner database and to contact these organizations directly to discuss ideas and explore fit. Alternatively, applicants may independently seek out a host partner organization.
