Harvard dental school seeks applicants for fellowship

The Harvard School of Dental Medicine and Harvard Medical School are seeking applicants for the 2014-2015 Joseph L. Henry Oral Health Fellowship in Minority Health Policy.

The fellowship is a one- or two-year academic degree-granting program designed to create oral health leaders, particularly minority oral health leaders, who will pursue careers in health policy, public health practice, and academia, according to the university.

The program is intended to incorporate the critical skills taught in schools of public health, government, business, and dental medicine with supervised practicum, leadership forums, and seminar series conducted by leading scholars and nationally recognized leaders in minority health and public policy.

The Oral Health Program is supported by the Dental Service of Massachusetts/Delta Dental Plan and previously the Health Resources and Services Administration through a cooperative agreement between the Office of Minority Health and Minority Faculty Development Program at Harvard Medical School.

The program is designed to prepare oral health leaders who will improve the capacity of the healthcare system to address the health needs of minority and disadvantaged populations.

The deadline for applications for the program starting in July 2014 is December 26, 2013.
