The Margaret E. Mahoney Fellowship program provides stipends for outstanding medical, dental, public health, public policy, and graduate nursing students to conduct summer research projects on some aspect of health care delivery transformation for vulnerable populations and/or early childhood health and development, with an emphasis on policy implications. Fellows are also required to participate in a variety of leadership development activities and will have the opportunity to meet local and national health policy leaders.
The 2015 program will run from June 8-August 14. Fellows must be available to work on their projects full-time during business hours in this 10 week period. Fellows cannot undertake clinical or other school obligations during the program. No exceptions will be made.
In 2015 we expect to award seven Fellowships.
The New York Academy of Medicine administers the program, which is guided by a distinguished National Advisory Committee: Drew Altman, T. Berry Brazelton, Robert Brook, Joseph Califano, John Craig, Karen Davis, Harvey Fineberg, Karen Hein, the Honorable Nancy Kassebaum-Baker, Phil Lee, Marie McCormick, David Satcher, Donna Shalala, Gail Warden, Mary Wilson, and Tim Wirth. These health leaders are committed to ensuring an enriched leadership development experience for the Fellows through their personal involvement and that of their colleagues. On successfully completing the Fellowship, the students will join a Margaret Mahoney Fellows Alumni Association and will continue to be offered unique opportunities for career development.
