2023 Health Equity Fellowship
Posted: May 8, 2023
The Urology Care Foundation is still accepting applications for the new Health Equity Fellow program, designed to train early-career urologists who are passionate about humanitarian work within the United States so that they may be effective in engaging with communities, especially those most marginalized. This fellowship will equip them with the skills necessary to develop and implement innovative approaches to address health inequity in urological care.
The two-year program consists of one-year of didactic education in partnership with the Center for Urban Bioethics at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University. The curriculum will center on health disparities as ethical issues and provide the fellows with a toolbox to practically address the inequities. At or near the end of year one, and equipped with new skills, the fellow will submit a capstone project, and in year two, the fellow will be supported with a stipend and ongoing mentoring to carry out the capstone project.
All application materials are due no later than May 15, 2023.
- This program is designed to fit within the construct of full academic or urology practice position. The fellowship can be completed by early-career urologists without adversely impacting their full-time work commitment and productivity.
- Costs of tuition and travel related to course study is covered by the Foundation, and in year 2 the Fellow will receive a $4,500 grant to support a community project.
- Participants will be expected to devote 3-4 hours per week to attend classes and complete assignments during fall and spring semesters.
