Launch: Health System Impact Fellowships




 

 

Health System Impact (HSI) Fellowship Funding Opportunity
 

The CIHR Institute of Population & Public Health is contributing funding towards four pools related to our strategic priority areas in the 
Health System Impact Fellowship call.
 

The Health System Impact (HSI) Fellowship provides highly-qualified doctoral trainees and post-doctoral fellows with a unique opportunity to apply their research and analytic talents to critical health challenges that are being addressed by health system and related organizations (e.g., public, private for-profit, not-for-profit, and Indigenous health organizations that are not universities) outside of the traditional scholarly setting, and to also develop professional experience, new skills, and networks.
