The University of Washington (UW) Department of Emergency Medicine is pleased to offer a two-year Population Health Research Fellowship for graduates of accredited emergency medicine residency programs who are interested in pursuing academic careers in population health research.

This fellowship is designed for junior faculty seeking personalized mentorship and time to build skills in population health research methods. A wide range of methods and approaches are available to our fellows, including co-design and implementation and engagement with clinical, community, public health practice, and policy partners. The fellowship provides dedicated time to develop academic projects, foster collaborations and hone a specific area of expertise within population health research. 

Population Health Research fellows work with faculty in the Department’s Section of Population Health to pursue training in support of their career development goals. Population Health faculty have expertise in a range of areas, including addiction, climate change and health, global health, refugee/humanitarian health research, health services research, implementation science, and program evaluation, and most fellows pursue work that is aligned with faculty expertise. 

Our expectation and commitment to our fellows is that, at the end of their fellowship, they will be able to design, conduct, and manage population health research projects independently; successfully compete for extramural research funding; integrate knowledge of clinical emergency medicine practice and its role in the health care delivery and public health systems with appropriate research methods; and excel as a clinician-scientist in an academic emergency department.
