APPLICANT REQUIREMENTS

To drive important change in every aspect of health and health care, Clinical Scholars seeks collaborative, curious participants from a wide range of clinical fields and practices. Apply as interprofessional and interdisciplinary teams of two to five members.

Applicants must have:

  • Received a clinical license in their chosen health profession (one member of the team must possess a terminal degree in his or her  chosen profession).
  • Completed all required clinical training five years before entering the program.
  • Gained substantial community-focused research or program experience.

The best way to see who this program is for is to meet our first cohort of fellows. But keep in mind that this is just the start—the experience will only grow stronger as new fellows from many other backgrounds, disciplines and perspectives round out this growing group. Imagine yourself on a team!
