The Commonwealth Fund invites you to a webinar on the Australia and New Zealand Harkness Fellowships in Health Care Policy and Practice on July 18th at 9:00 a.m./11:00 a.m. (AEST/NZST).
Robin Osborn (vice president and director, The Commonwealth Fund) will discuss how the Harkness Fellowship works, the program throughout the year, and provide a brief overview of the U.S. health policy context. Juliet Rumball-Smith (2016-17 New Zealand Harkness Fellow), and Adam Elshaug (2010-11 Australia Harkness Fellow) will discuss their Harkness Fellowship experiences, projects, and how the Harkness Fellowship changed their lives both personally and professionally.
The Harkness Fellowships provide a unique opportunity for mid-career professionals—academic researchers, government policymakers, clinical leaders, hospital and insurance managers, and journalists—from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, and the United Kingdom—to spend up to 12 months in the United States working with leading experts to study health care delivery reforms and critical issues on the health policy agenda in both the U.S. and their home countries. The Commonwealth Fund brings together the full class of Fellows through the year to participate in a series of high level policy briefings and leadership seminars with health care leaders.
The deadline for receipt of applications from Australia and New Zealand is October 7, 2019.
