The fellowship is based at Harvard Medical School under the direction of Joan Reede, M.D., M.P.H., M.S., M.B.A., the Dean for Diversity and Community Partnership. Up to five one-year, degree-granting fellowships are awarded annually, with the potential for an optional second-year of practicum experience.

    Fellows complete academic work leading to a master of public health (M.P.H.) degree at the Harvard School of Public Health and are provided with core fellowship components such as seminars on leadership and health policy, a practicum, leadership forums, conferences, site visits, mentoring, journal clubs, and shadowing. The fellowship offers a master of public administration (M.P.A.) degree at the Harvard Kennedy School to physicians who already have an M.P.H. The application deadline for the 2013–2014 fellowship is December 15, 2012.

    This webinar will provide information about the fellowship, and a former fellow will discuss her experience in the program. It will end with a question-and-answer session.

BIOMEDICAL SCIENCE CAREERS STUDENT CONFERENCE
The Westin Hotel Copley Place

This conference is designed for postdoctoral fellows; medical, dental and graduate students; college and community college students; post-baccalaureates; and high school seniors and juniors. There are two objectives of the Biomedical Science Careers Student Conference. The primary objective is to provide over 800 African-American, Hispanic/Latino and American Indian/Alaska Native students with an opportunity to network with advisors/role models from the basic and clinical sciences, medicine, public health, academic administration and the private sector. These advisors/role models will encourage students to complete advanced studies, and provide concrete advice and information on available resources, professional opportunities and career paths in biomedical science fields. The second objective is to enable student participants to meet, inspire and network with one another. Student participants should be seriously interested in or currently studying in biomedical, biotechnology and science-related fields, such as medicine, chemistry, physics, biology, nursing, dentistry, pharmacy, biomedical engineering, biotechnology, physical therapy, public health, allied health or environmental science.
