EMRA Fellowship Guide

Chapter 11 Health Policy Fellowship

Healthy policy fellowships strive to educate future physician leaders who will be effective change agents within the health care system and ultimately serve to shape the future health care landscape. This is accomplished through the development of academic, clinical, and professional skillsets. EM providers, with their experience at the gateway to health care and broad clinical training, are uniquely qualified to serve in this capacity.
