AHCJ Reporting Fellowships on Health Care Performance

AHCJ Reporting Fellowships on Health Care Performance
Logo: AHCJ Media Fellowshiops on Health PerformanceThe AHCJ Reporting Fellowships on Health Care Performance is a yearlong program allowing journalists to pursue a significant reporting project related to the U.S. health care system. It can be local or national in scope, or a little of both — say an aspect of the Affordable Care Act playing out in your community or subject specialty, or the impact of particular evidence-based treatments on health outcomes, or an analysis of a health care organization’s performance, using public data sets. Fellows pursue the projects with the support of their newsrooms or freelance outlets, which commit to publish or air the work.

Guidance is provided by AHCJ fellowship leaders through customized seminars on health care systems, conference calls and email consultations. The fellowship covers the cost of attending the seminars and AHCJ conferences, and a project allowance is available to defray the cost of field reporting, health data analysis and other project-related research. In addition, each fellow will receive a $2,500 fellowship award upon the successful completion of the project.
The fellowship program is supported by The Commonwealth Fund.
Take a look at the work of some of our former fellows HERE.

Application deadline is Nov. 4.
“The experience has pushed me way out of my comfort level in a great way. I never had the opportunity to travel so much and talk to so many different people when putting together a project.”
— John George, Philadelphia Business Journal
