Get $35,000 a Year to Solve a “Wicked Problem”

Do you have an idea to improve health outcomes in communities across the country?

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Clinical Scholars National Leadership Program is now accepting applications. Applicants apply in multidisciplinary teams of two to five providers. Teams identify complex “wicked problems” compromising a culture of health in their communities and propose innovative, community-focused approaches to improve community health and health equity.

Awarded teams receive program funds and leadership training to implement their approaches in their communities. Program funds are determined by team size — $35,000 per clinician per year for three years. Teams travel twice a year to participate in leadership skills training tailored to active providers and utilize a multi-platform, distance-based system in between on-site training retreats.

Applications are accepted until 3 p.m., March 8. Learn more about the event by attending the Clinical Scholar Information Session on Thursday, February 2, 2017 at 12 pm in MSC Room 2010. RSVP to Stacey Coleman for event details or to watch via distance. See the flier below for details.
