Population Health Fellowship

The NHS Long-Term Plan places significant emphasis on population health and Health Education England’s Future Doctor programme has identified population health as a core theme. Increasingly contemporary healthcare is focused on optimising patient care and outcomes at population level and therefore clinicians across all of healthcare require skills in population health to achieve this.

The Fellow posts will commence on 4th August 2021. 

This is an opportunity for NHS clinical staff across the multi-professional team to develop skills in population health. The fellowship targets early to mid-career registered healthcare professionals providing NHS services (AfC band 6 and above, or equivalent; dentists-in-training; doctors-in-training post-FY2 and their SAS equivalent). The aim of the fellowship is to develop a network of clinicians from a non-population health background with population health skills to benefit place-based healthcare systems across England.

It is a 1-year part-time programme at 2 days a week alongside clinical practice. Population Health Fellows will lead on a population health project and will be supported by a blended mostly online and virtual learning programme.  Supervision for the project will be provided.

Reimbursement of your salary element of the participation in the fellowship will be provided to your substantive employer and you should discuss this opportunity with your line manager and educational supervisor (if applicable) of your intentions to apply at an early stage.

The outcome of the fellowship will be measured through a completion of a reflective diary, project report and a project presentation. 

There is an expectation that all Population Health Fellows contribute to an evaluation of this programme and attend events and meetings organised by either Health Education England or their host organisation.
