Scholars who successfully complete the program will be able to effectively conduct research regarding patients and their perspectives on illnesses and treatments to improve the quality of health care in their communities.

This unique opportunity is for scientists, clinicians, and health care managers employed by or affiliated with the following organizations:

  • Seattle Indian Health Board
  • Southcentral Foundation of Alaska
  • Swedish Health Services or Providence Health & Services

All applicants must be endorsed by one of these organizations to participate. PCORP staff will host an informational webinar for potential applicants on December 5, 2014 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. (PT).
