Health Justice Fellowship: Call for Applications

By Carol Williams-Nickelson, PsyD
AMSA Executive Director
AMSA is now accepting applications for its 2011-2012 Health Justice Fellowship. This is an exceptional opportunity for a medical student to spend a year focusing on issues such as physician work re-design; student-labor solidarity in the health care sector; physician workforce supply, especially in the practice of primary care; disparity and equity in health care access and medical debt.

The AMSA/CIR Health Justice Fellowship is sponsored by the Committee of Interns and Residents (CIR). The objectives of the fellowship include learning and refining the fellow’s skills in medical student organizing, leadership development, strategic planning and advocacy.

AMSA Fellows work at the AMSA National Office, in Reston, Virginia. The Health Justice Fellow’s work will center on organizing two or more major projects to engage students and strengthen programming. These projects should support the strategic priorities of AMSA and CIR, and increase both organizations’ visibility to medical students. The fellowship is paid, full-time and include full employment benefits and complimentary housing. 

This will be the most memorable year of your medical training! But don’t just take my word – check out what past AMSA Fellows have said about their experiences. You can also check out AMSA Rotations, to listen to a podcast interview with AMSA’s current Health Justice Fellow, Sonia Lazreg!
