Our health care system continues to change rapidly, demanding a broader focus on populations, value and service over generating visits.  This new joint Stanford/Intermountain Fellowship aims to train the next generation of leaders in population health, primary care, and delivery science crucial to meeting that challenge. Stanford Medicine and Intermountain Healthcare have joined forces to take advantage of their synergies in research, system implementation design, and institutional and population diversity, forming an excellent base for such a training program.
The two-year program includes tuition support for a master’s degree in health services research that gives fellows a basic understanding of epidemiology, study design, cost effectiveness, health policy, implementation science and other disciplines needed for a successful research or program development career.  Fellows will also be exposed to key health delivery concepts including Lean healthcare design, the Patient Centered Medical Home, longitudinal population outcomes tracking, and change management.  Each Fellow will assemble a formal mentorship team from world class faculty at both institutions to help him or her develop a project from conception to completion and publication. The program will also provide each fellow with $50K to support their research efforts and prepare them for a successful independent career. Clinical responsibilities will be minimal (1/2 day per week) to ensure ample time to develop these skills.
Please contact Dr. Steven Asch ( at Stanford or Dr. Raj Srivastava ( at Intermountain.
