Program Overview
W.K. Kellogg Foundation Doctoral Fellowship in Health Policy

National Medical Fellowships, Inc. has established a doctoral fellowship program to create a cadre of health researchers with a focus in one of our areas: health policy, men's health, mental health, and substance abuse. The program will award fellowships to talented minority men or women enrolled in graduate programs in public health, health policy or social policy leading to the doctorate (Ph.D., Dr.P.H., or Sc.D.). The fellowship will provide the opportunity to complete advanced training in research methodology, including quantitative and qualitative methods. The expectation is that the Fellows who graduate from the program will be a resource for government agencies, managed care organizations, community health centers, research institutions and academia.
