The Health Foundation’s Improvement Science Fellowship programme offers support for fellows to develop their potential to become leaders in the field of improvement science, building practical knowledge about what works to improve healthcare.
This senior post-doctoral Fellowship offers three years’ funding to lead original, applied research dedicated to improving healthcare in the UK, and a unique leadership development programme.
Current and previous Improvement Science Fellows have used the opportunity to develop the expertise they needed to:
- re-position their career in improvement science
- combine in-depth research with continuing clinical practice
- consolidate their research interests and build capacity locally
- make the move from local improvement to national implementation and evaluation.
