Advanced Training Fellowship in Rehabilitation Policy Research

The University of Washington (UW) and the Health and Aging Policy Fellows Program are offering a competitive fellowship for individuals with a demonstrated academic and personal interest in the areas of aging, disability, rehabilitation, and policy research. We hope to increase the number of successful independent rehabilitation policy researchers prepared to conduct investigations related to healthcare policy in individuals with disabilities across the lifespan, with an emphasis on older adults. We are seeking highly qualified fellows with a passion for rehabilitation and aging policy and research.

What is the program?
This fellowship is a mentored, sequential, two-year training experience. During year 1, fellows will conduct interdisciplinary and mentored research in disability and rehabilitation in the Department of Rehabilitation at UW, in Seattle. In year 2, fellows will relocate to Washington D.C., where they will gain important policy experience through a structured program that includes a policy placement in a federal agency.

This two-year fellowship offers a unique training experience that will produce fellows with the expertise necessary to conduct high quality research on disability and aging policy. All fellows will be provided a salary stipend, funds for travel and coursework, and some relocation expenses.
