The American Urological Association is accepting applications for its 2018 Gallagher Health Policy Scholar program.
The annual program is designed to attract urologists who have demonstrated a commitment to or have a keen interest in the field of health policy and who are dedicated to advancing AUA’s health policy agenda. Gallagher Scholars spend up to thirty days away from their practice for intensive training on a wide range of health policy issues. Training includes mentoring from seasoned physician volunteers, participation in key meetings and conferences, study of selected didactic articles, and completion of a health policy project as outlined by the Public Policy Council.
A stipend of $15,000 and reimbursement for travel and other expenses will be provided over the course of the year-long program.
To be eligible, applicants must be an AUA member urologist who has demonstrated a commitment to or have a keen interest in the field of health policy and who are dedicated to advancing urology's health policy agenda.
