The NCI/AcademyHealth Healthcare Delivery Research Visiting Scholars Program offers mid-career scientists a year-long, funded part-time opportunity to pursue projects at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in Rockville, Maryland. The program seeks to provide  scientists working in the field of health services or healthcare delivery research with protected time to develop new research directions that advance both their own career goals and the field more broadly. Scholars will collaborate closely with staff in the NCI Healthcare Delivery Research Program and have the opportunity to learn about how NCI carries out its extramural grant-making mission.  In addition, Scholars will have access to AcademyHealth program activities.

The Visiting Scholar(s) will be housed in NCI’s Healthcare Delivery Research Program (HDRP).  HDRP’s mission is to advance innovative research to improve the delivery of cancer-related care and it accomplishes this work through its three Branches: Healthcare Assessment Research Branch, Health Systems and Interventions Research Branch, and Outcomes Research Branch.  More information about HDRP, including current research and funding initiatives, is available on their website.
