PROGRAMS FOR FELLOWS AND JUNIOR FACULTY
THE MONGAN COMMONWEALTH FUND FELLOWSHIP IN MINORITY HEALTH POLICY
(Formerly The Commonwealth Fund/Harvard University Fellowship in Minority Health Policy)
The practicum is a problem-solving exercise through which fellows learn how to apply their analytical skill to real-world policy decisions. The practicum project can take the form of either an analysis of the effects of a public policy or a study of management processes for a client organization in government, public sector, community health settings or private industry.
Fellows are expected to define and structure the problem with the organization, gather relevant information, identify and evaluate various courses of action, and propose recommendations for the organization. Fellows meet regularly with the Fellowship director who provides guidance on the content, structure and presentation of the project. Fellows also work closely with their project preceptors and faculty advisor to solicit feedback and support.
At the completion of their projects, fellows receive credit toward their MPH and are required to prepare both an oral presentation and written report. The presentations of the projects are scheduled in May each year. The Coordinating Committee members together with agency preceptor, Harvard faculty, staff, and students will attend the presentations.
