Postdoctoral Training Opportunity – Institute for Public Health and Medicine (IPHAM)
The Northwestern University Institute for Public Health and Medicine (IPHAM) will host a 2-year advanced fellowship in the conduct of health services and outcomes research specifically to guide improvement in health delivery systems and health policies that improve population health and health equity. The fellowship provides mentorship, experience, and coursework to train participants for research careers in academic medicine. Mentorship will be provided by faculty from the Institute for Public Health and Medicine, who explore a wide variety of topics and methodologies, including health services research, healthcare delivery, epidemiology, health communication, health literacy, health promotion and behavior change, community health, health disparities, aging, human factors, and informatics.
Fellows will spend the majority of time designing, carrying out, analyzing, and disseminating research designed collaboratively by a multidisciplinary team that engages closely with diverse stakeholders. Fellows will receive training in research presentation, writing, publishing, and funding. Fellows have the opportunity to access advanced-level graduate coursework or to earn a master’s level degree, in such programs as Public Health, Health Services and Outcomes Research, Healthcare Quality and Patient Safety, Biostatistics, or Clinical Investigation through the Northwestern University Center for Education in Health Sciences.
Fellows who hold a MD degree will have the opportunity to spend 1 or 2 half-days per week providing clinical care in an affiliated Northwestern Medical Group Practice Setting. Fellows will be appointed as a postdoctoral fellow with a courtesy appointment of instructor within the Department of Medicine. Salary will be commensurate with education and experience.
