Fellowship Program Overview

The Kraft Fellowship in Community Health Leadership is a two-year program to prepare a new generation of physician leaders who will contribute to the field of community health and lead the development of new models of collaboration between academic medicine and community health centers.

Through coursework at the Harvard School of Public Health, mentoring from community health center leaders and Harvard faculty, clinical practice in community health centers, and a scholarly project related to community health, the Fellowship will provide participants with clinical, research, management, and policy expertise to influence and advocate for improved health outcomes for underserved communities. The Kraft Fellowship in Community Health Leadership also offers student loan repayment of up to $50,000 in return for a three-year commitment to community health following completion of the program. 

Please note that the Kraft Fellowship in Community Health Leadership is now offered on an every-other-year basis only and accepts up to two Fellows per class. We are no longer accepting applications for the 2017 class and plan to re-open for the 2019 class in the fall of 2018 (when we will consider residents graduating in 2017, 2018, and 2019). Feel free to contact us with any questions about this at kraftcenterfellowship@partners.org.
