The Commonwealth Fund invites you to a webinar on the German Harkness/B. Braun Stiftung Fellowships in Health Care Policy and Practice on July 13, 2017 at 2:30 p.m. CEST (8:30 a.m. EST).

Robin Osborn (vice president and director, The Commonwealth Fund) will discuss how the Fellowship works, the program throughout the year, and eligibility. David Squires (senior researcher, The Commonwealth Fund) will provide a brief overview of the U.S. health policy context. Prof. Dr. Alexander Schachtrupp (Managing Director, B. Braun Stiftung) will speak about the Fellowship and its relevance to German applicants. Alexander Pimperl (2015-16 German Harkness Fellow) will discuss his Harkness Fellowship experience, his project, and how the Harkness Fellowship changed his life, personally and professionally. 

The Harkness Fellowships provide a unique opportunity for mid-career professionals—academic researchers, government policymakers, clinical leaders, hospital and insurance managers, and journalists—from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, and the United Kingdom—to spend up to 12 months in the United States working with leading experts to study health care delivery reforms and critical issues on the health policy agenda in both the U.S. and their home countries. The Commonwealth Fund brings together the full class of Fellows through the year to participate in a series of high level policy briefings and leadership seminars with health care leaders.

The deadline for receipt of applications from Germany is November 13, 2017.
