Health Policy Fellowship
Ohio University and NYIT
Applications are now available for the twentieth class of the Health Policy Fellowship. The Health Policy Fellowship is a collaborative effort between Ohio University and the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) to train mid-career physicians and professionals closely associated with the osteopathic profession to become effective advocates for patients by learning the skills necessary to understand and influence health policy on the local, state, and national levels.
The AOA certificate program provides a series of ten on-site seminars in cities around the country. Each seminar covers a specific health policy topic, and the year culminates in the presentation of Fellows’ health policy briefs in Washington, DC.
Many HPF graduates go on to accept leadership positions in the profession and in medical education. A schedule for the 2013-2014 year, a description of the program, and a list of graduates is available in the Program Description and Schedule at this link: http://www.oucom.ohiou.edu/hpf/Apply2012.htm
