NCHS/AcademyHealth Health Policy Scholars

The National Center for Health Statistics and AcademyHealth developed the NCHS/AcademyHealth Health Policy Scholars Program.

The program is designed to encourage the use of NCHS data systems and programs by the health services research community in response to current health policy questions, and provide a basis for future health policy.

Each year, the program recruits one (1) scholar (pre- or post-doctoral training) from the field of health services and policy research to conduct research at their home institution. The scholar will have unique access to restricted data file(s) (free-of-charge) through the NCHS Research Data Center (RDC), and potentially other Federal Statistical Research Data Centers (FSRDC), to enhance and improve their research.

Applicants must demonstrate training or experience in health services research in disciplines such as public health, public administration, health care administration, sociology, health economics, health statistics, anthropology, and behavioral sciences, or clinical care, including medicine, nursing, dentistry, and pharmacology.

Application Cycle Closes: Tuesday, January 1, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. ET
