November 1st officially opens the application process for the 2016-2017 SHLI Health Policy Leadership Fellowship Program. Started in 2009, the fellowship is a multi-disciplinary training program designed to prepare physicians and postdoctoral professionals for leadership roles promoting policies and practices to reduce disparities and advance health equity. We are particularly interested in developing leaders from underserved, under-represented, and racial and ethnic minority populations with a strong commitment to health equity.

We work to engage a diverse group of early career professionals from a spectrum of disciplinary backgrounds and experiences to both inform and learn from the health and health equity-in-all-policies lens that is integrated across the program.

The application process is open until January 15, 2016 for fellows applying to begin the program on September 1, 2016. For additional information, go to
