What

A new post-graduate fellowship program focused on the intersection between health policy and health technology innovation – specifically, how policy can accelerate the use of technology to improve health outcomes while expanding access and increasing affordability.

Who

Individuals with advanced degrees plus three to five years of work experience (or post-graduate study) preferred. Fellows will be selected based on their experience and/or demonstrated interest in health technology innovation, as well as their potential to become leaders in the field of health policy. Research experience and a strong publication record are encouraged but not required. Individuals at all stages of their careers are welcome (see detailed eligibility requirements on our Frequently Asked Questions page).

Where

Policy Fellows will become full-time members of the Stanford Biodesign team. The first year of the fellowship will be based at the James H. Clark Center on the Stanford University campus in the heart of Silicon Valley. During the second year, fellows will be located in Washington DC (or another policy hub that aligns with their interests) for the internship portion of their fellowship.

When

The Policy Fellowship is a full-time, two year, paid program beginning in August and running through July of the second year. Fellows receive a monthly stipend and health benefits during their fellowship period.

Policy Fellows are selected via a competitive application and interview process. Recruiting for the 2023-25 program will begin in June 2022, with applications due Thursday, September 22, 2022.
