Are you committed to improving health and aging? Are you interested in learning about policymaking to increase your impact? If so, the Columbia University Medical Center invites you to apply to join the next class of Health and Aging Policy Fellows (2022–2023)!

The program aims to create a cadre of leaders who will serve as change agents in health and aging policy to ultimately improve the health care of older adults. The year-long fellowship offers a rich and unique training and enrichment program that is focused on current policy issues, communication skills development, and professional networking opportunities to provide Fellows with the experience and skills necessary to help affect policy.
