As part of the Population Health and Prevention programme, Health Education England (HEE) has launched a new Population Health Fellowship programme for health care workers in the NHS. There are 14 fellowships available for all NHS clinical staff (AFC Band 6 and above/Post Foundation Training) including doctors, nurses, allied health professionals, dentists, healthcare scientists, pharmacists and others, to develop skills in population health.
Successful applicants will have the opportunity to be seconded part-time to work collaboratively within a local organisation or more widely across a healthcare system. Fellows will be supported to acquire population health competencies and expected to lead on a population health project and will be based either in their current healthcare organisation or elsewhere, depending upon the Fellowship to which they are appointed. The programme will be launched across HEE’s seven regions.
It is HEE’s intention that the Fellowships will accelerate the development of population health advocates and provide a growing network within the NHS multidisciplinary workforce committed to a population health approach in their day to day work.
Fellowships will last one year, starting in 2020.
Applications are now open. The deadline for applications is midnight Friday 4 October 2019.
Candidates who are successfully shortlisted can expect to be called for the next level of selection processes in October 2019.
