The Institute for Healthcare Studies and the Department of Physical 
Medicine and Rehabilitation of Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of 
Medicine anticipate the availability of post-doctoral health services 
research fellowships. These two-year, full-time fellowships provide an 
opportunity for individuals who have completed a doctoral degree to gain 
expertise and experience in health services research, with the goal of 
preparing fellows for a career in health services research. Program 
graduates will help ensure that there are adequate numbers of highly 
trained individuals to carry out the Nation’s health services research 
agenda, with a focus on improving quality and safety of healthcare, 
enhancing access and healthcare equity, and appraising the effectiveness of 
healthcare expenditures and health policy. Positions preferably begin 
between June and September 2010.
Research is centered on six core program areas:
· Disability and Rehabilitation
· Healthcare Equity
· Patient Safety
· Healthcare Economics
· Healthcare Quality
· Health Services Research and Health Policy
The major clinical substrates for these fellowships include health of 
persons with disabilities, cancer, arthritis, general internal medicine, 
maternal and child health, and gerontology. The fellowship requires 
enrollment in a Masters in Health Services Research, a Masters in Public 
Health, a Masters in Healthcare Quality and Safety, a Master of Science in 
Epidemiology and Biostatistics, or a Master of Science in Clinical 
The fellowship program builds on the synergy between several Northwestern 
University departments, schools and organizations, including: The Feinberg

University Robert H. Lurie Cancer Center, the Buehler Center on Aging; and 
the Center for Management of Complex Chronic Care. One position is funded 
by a Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Improving Measurement 
of Medical Rehabilitation Outcomes and provides an opportunity to work on 
RRTC-related projects.
