Have 5 years clinical practice experience? Apply now for RWJF Clinical Scholars Program

Are you a SSW alumnus with at least five years of clinical practice experience? Are you currently working in an interdisciplinary team in a community, academic, tribal or clinical setting in the U.S.? Do you and your team have ideas for innovative new programs that could improve health outcomes in your community and other communities, too? If so, you’re a perfect candidate for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars program.

Each RWJF Clinical Scholar receives a $35,000 annual fellowship, which can be used for salary, program costs or other expenses, for three consecutive years. Scholars receive high-touch mentoring and executive coaching, complete an advanced leadership curriculum (including seven in-person leadership sessions as well as interactive distance-based learning), network with a national group of leaders, design and implement a real-world project and present the results of that project in several settings, including a “TED”-style talk.

Applications are due in March 2018, but you are encouraged to register now for a free webinar on Nov. 29, 3:30-4:40 p.m. EST to learn more about the RWJF Clinical Scholars program. Funding for the Clinical Scholars program is provided by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, committed to creating a culture of health.
