Fellowship Program Overview
The Kraft Fellowship in Community Health Leadership is a two-year program to prepare a new generation of physician leaders who will contribute to the field of community health and lead the development of new models of collaboration between academic medicine and community health centers.
Through coursework at the Harvard School of Public Health, mentoring from community health center leaders and Harvard faculty, clinical practice in community health centers, and a scholarly project related to community health, the Fellowship will provide participants with clinical, research, management, and policy expertise to influence and advocate for improved health outcomes for underserved communities. The Kraft Fellowship in Community Health Leadership also offers student loan repayment of up to $50,000 in return for a three-year commitment to community health following completion of the program.
Please note that the Kraft Fellowship in Community Health Leadership is now offered on an every-other-year basis only.
The next class of Kraft Fellows will begin in July 2017. Applications for the Kraft Fellowships class beginning July 2017 are being accepted now. The Kraft Center will work with accepted physicians to arrange full-time employment in a relevant community health center for the year prior to the start of the Kraft Fellowship.
