This fellowship program brought visiting scholars in health services research-related disciplines to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) in Hyattsville, Maryland, for a period of 13 months to conduct studies of interest to policymakers and the health services research community. Fellows had access to NCHS data resources for use in their proposed studies, and also worked on collaborative projects with NCHS staff.

We are not accepting applications for the NCHS/AcademyHealth Health Policy Fellowship until further notice.
