• Applications for cohort 2021/22 are now closed.
  • Targeted at early to mid-career registered healthcare professionals providing NHS services.

 

The NHS Long-Term Plan places significant emphasis on population health and Health Education England’s Future Doctor programme has identified population health as a core theme. Increasingly, contemporary healthcare is focused on optimising patient care and outcomes at population level, and therefore clinicians across all of healthcare require skills in population health to achieve this.

This is an opportunity for NHS clinical staff across the multi-professional team to develop skills in population health. The fellowship targets early to mid-career registered healthcare professionals providing NHS services (AfC band 6 and above, or equivalent; dentists-in-training; doctors-in-training post-FY2 and their SAS equivalent). The aim of the fellowship is to develop a network of clinicians from a non-population health background with population health skills to benefit place-based healthcare systems across England.

It is a 1-year part-time programme at 2 days a week alongside clinical practice. Population Health Fellows will lead on a population health project and will be supported by a blended mostly online and virtual learning programme.
