Science Policy Fellowships
"Science Policy Fellowships – a unique opportunity to gain health policy experience"
Have you ever wondered how research evidence can be used to inform health policy? Have you ever considered contributing your research knowledge to developing evidence-informed policy? Have you ever asked yourself how your research could be useful to policy makers? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the Science Policy Fellowships program might be for you.
The Science Policy Fellowships program gives health researchers and trainees the opportunity to gain real world experience in health policy making. Researchers from all areas of health can apply to spend six to twelve months in a policy setting where they will work as part of a policy team.
