Apply for Washington Health Policy Fellowship
The AAOS Washington Health Policy Fellowship Program provides an outstanding opportunity for exceptional senior orthopaedic residents and fellows-in-training to take part in and understand federal health policy processes. Fellows actively contribute to the formulation of national health policies and accelerate their careers as leaders in health policy.
The program funds up to two orthopaedic residents per year and provides the opportunity to work in the legislative and regulatory arena for a multi-week period during a 12-month timeframe. While flexible, the fellowship requires a considerable time commitment. Attendance at some AAOS meetings, such as the National Orthopaedic Leadership Conference, is required. The AAOS Washington Office will work with the selected applicants to design a program that meets the fellows’ needs, interests and schedules.
The application deadline is Sept. 15, 2006. Direct questions to Jeanie Kennedy, manager of regulatory affairs in the Washington office, at (202) 546-4150 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Information and application materials are on the AAOS Web site.
