2003 – 2004 Class of Fellows

The RWJF Health Policy Fellows program, which seeks to build and maintain strong and diverse leadership and a workforce skilled in health policy, is critical to that vision.

For over 40 years this non-partisan fellowship has offered exclusive, hands-on policy experience in the nation’s capital.  Working hand-in-hand with key players in federal health policy, more than 270 fellows have participated in the policy process at the federal level and used that leadership experience to improve health, health care, and health policy.

The National Academy of Medicine conducts and administers the fellowship, with funding support from RWJF.
