Apply for fellowship to compare health systems in U.S., Europe

The Association of Health Care Journalists is accepting applications for the second class of AHCJ International Health Study Fellowships.

The fellowships are intended to help veteran U.S.-based journalists compare elements of the U.S. health system with those of similarly developed countries – for this year, in Europe. The program, supported by The Commonwealth Fund, provides for training as well as international field reporting assistance.

The program for mid-career journalists gives print, broadcast and online reporters an opportunity to study how one element of the U.S. health care system is handled in another country and to report on the differences. Fellows will be able to interview patients, health care providers and policymakers both in the United States and abroad.

Application period opens for AHCJ Reporting Fellowships on Health Care Performance

The Association of Health Care Journalists is accepting applications for the 2020 AHCJ Reporting Fellowships on Health Care Performance. The program, in its 10th year, is meant to help journalists understand and report on the performance of local health care markets and the U.S. health system as a whole.

The fellowship program, supported by The Commonwealth Fund, is intended to give experienced print, broadcast and online reporters an opportunity to pursue significant projects in 2020 that concentrate on the performance of health care systems – or significant parts of those systems – locally, regionally or nationally. The fellows are able to examine policies, practices and outcomes, as well as the roles of various stakeholders.

Past projects have included in-depth examinations of a state mental health care system, state attempts at Medicaid expansion, maternal mortality, how states handle opioid addiction and treatment, what leads some rural hospitals to fail while others survive and more.
