The Los Angeles Area Health Services Research Training Program is supported by a grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research Quality (AHRQ). The program is designed to provide training and experience to a select group of post-doctoral fellows in the field of health services research. Fellows, in turn, are expected to pursue a career in the field of health services research.
The post-doctoral training program is a collaboration between UCLA's Department of Health Policy and Management at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, RAND Health, USC Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics, and the Veterans Administration Center of Excellence for the Study of Healthcare Provider Behavior. Post-doctoral fellows have the option of pursuing a Masters degree in the UCLA Department of Health Policy and Management. To be eligible to receive a post-doctoral award, the prospective candidate must have obtained a Ph.D., medical degree, or other professional doctoral degree. Awards will last two years. The fellowship provides a stipend, which currently ranges from $39,264 to $49,884, depending on the number of years of post-doctoral experience. Health insurance is also provided. If Post-doctoral fellows pursue a Masters degree in the UCLA Department of Health Policy and Management, most tuition and fees are covered during the fellowship. Travel money is also available for fellows to attend professional meetings.
There are four components of the post-doctoral program:
Post-Doctoral Fellows will work with the program director to determine appropriate courses to audit through the duration of the program. Those pursuing a Masters degree must complete a total of 12 courses.
