Health System Impact Fellowships (for doctoral trainees and post-doctoral fellows) – Profiles of Host Partner Organizations
The Health System Impact Fellowship (HSIF) program is founded on partnerships with health system and related organizations (e.g., public, not-for-profit, private for-profit organizations) that are committed to the program objectives, including providing enriching, stimulating and impact-oriented experiential learning opportunities for PhD trainees and/or post-doctoral fellows that accelerate their professional growth and career readiness and advance the organization’s impact goals regarding health system improvement.
Brief profiles of the organizations that have expressed interest to CIHR-IHSPR in hosting an HSI Fellow (PhD trainee and/or post-doctoral fellow) are provided below. Note: profiles are posted unedited and in the language submitted.
Applicants are invited to review these profiles and submit expressions of interest (EOI) to organizations. Note: applicants may pursue experiential learning opportunities with profiled organizations and/or organizations that are not profiled but that meet the definition of “health system and related organization” as defined in the funding opportunity.
Instructions and actions
- Step 1: Explore potential host partner organizations and submit expressions of interest: Interested applicants are encouraged to review the host partner organization profiles and submit an EOI to organizations of interest. Multiple EOIs are permitted, however applicants must ultimately confirm one host partner organization and submit a CIHR application with that organization. Tip: Do this early. Do not leave it to the last minute. It takes time to build a meaningful partnership and to then co-develop a CIHR application. Host partner organizations will accept EOIs and make commitments on an ongoing basis, so reach out early on.
- Step 2: Expression of interest requirements: The EOI must be sent by email (see the contact details in the host partner organization’s profile) and must include, in addition to a general introduction and purpose statement, the applicant’s CV (professional CV, not Common CV) and half page “Relevant Accomplishments and Abilities” component of the HSIF application. Organizations will use these documents for initial screening. Tip: Tailor your EOIs to each organization. Clearly specify why you are interested in a particular organization and the added value you believe you can bring to the organization’s impact goals.
- Step 3: Meet with organizations: Organizations will respond to all EOIs received and invite the candidate(s) of potential interest for a meeting (or multiple meetings) to discuss interests and ideas and explore fit (i.e., by phone, web or in-person). Organizations will conduct an internal assessment and selection process. Candidates, similarly, may meet with multiple organizations and conduct their own assessment and selection of the optimal host partner organization for their personal career goals and interests.
- Step 4: Confirm partnership and develop application: When a mutual fit is confirmed between a candidate and an organization, an email between the two will officially verify the partnership. The candidate and host partner organization will, at this stage, co-develop the CIHR application. Tip: Review the funding opportunity Evaluation Criteria and How to Apply sections in detail. The funding opportunity is the official resources for application details and requirements.
