The George Washington University (GW) Residency Fellowship in Health Policy (RFHP) is an intensive three-week elective. It provides multi-specialty resident and fellow physicians with an understanding of U.S. health policy and its implications for medical practice and healthcare delivery. The program increases participant knowledge of key health policy issues impacting their local communities and the nation, thus preparing them to be effective physician-leaders in system-based practice. The elective has two components: first, daily classroom-based learning and second, in-person site visits at various Washington, DC institutions. RFHP uniquely capitalizes on its location and the extraordinary resources available in the region.
The Residency Fellowship in Health Policy is made possible through the combined resources of the Milken Institute School of Public Health at GW, the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences and Children's National Medical Center. The RFHP is available to GW and CNMC residents from all disciplines who are interested in an intensive, short-term health policy fellowship as part of their graduate medical education experience.
