Applications Open! MGH HTL Fellowship in Healthcare Innovation

Overview

The Healthcare Transformation Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital is pleased to announce the second year of the MGH HTL Fellowship in Healthcare Innovation.  This one year action-learning program, made possible by a generous grant from the Aetna Foundation, provides a unique opportunity for healthcare professionals interested in hands-on care delivery transformation projects to make an impact on the front lines.  Fellows will spend majority of the year leading care delivery innovation projects in an academic medical center with mentorship from experts in the field as well as support from senior leadership. Sample focus areas of interest could include: a) digital health and health IT; b) quality, safety and outcomes; c) population health; and d) patient-centered care.

Eligibility

Prospective applicants should be healthcare professionals with a strong interest in care delivery and implementation science; and have a track record of academic productivity.

Elements of the Program

The program is designed to be a hands-on experience with a majority of time spent on innovation projects. However, fellows are also encouraged to spend up to 20% effort on clinical duties, depending on acceptance into a clinical role by departmental leaders. Fellows will be required to attend didactic lectures and attend monthly meetings with the program director. Fellows will have the opportunity to interact with leaders in digital health, health IT, quality, safety and outcomes, population health, patient-centered care, and healthcare entrepreneurship not only within MGH and Harvard Medical School, but also the wider Boston/ Cambridge community.

Funding

The fellows program provides competitive salary plus benefits for one year (July 2018 – June 2019).
