Spring 2020 Agenda
*Schedule is subject to change during the course (March 16 - April 3). Please check calendar for the updated information.*
The goal of the GW Residency Fellowship in Health Policy is to provide medical residents and fellows with an understanding of U.S. health policy and its implications for medical practice and healthcare oversight in the U.S. By the end of the fellowship, students will be able to confidently analyze and discuss key aspects of U.S. health policy through participation in intensive, interactive seminars. Core content areas include healthcare access, financing, regulation, quality, disparities, workforce, and law. Participants will also witness health policy-making first-hand through site visits to Congress, Federal Agencies, think tanks, professional associations, Federally Qualified Health Centers, state health departments, media outlets, and more! In these settings, participants will have the opportunity to meet with the policy leaders driving today’s critical debates firsthand. The course culminates with group presentations wherein participants demonstrate their health policy analysis skills in simulations designed to mirror real-world challenges.
Readings for any given lecture or site visit are searchable here. Please check the readings frequently as not to miss anything imperative to the course.
