The Harkness Fellowships Award enables talented Canadians to participate in the Harkness Fellowships in Health Care Policy and Practice, a core program of The Commonwealth Fund's International Program in Health Policy and Practice. The Commonwealth Fund, in collaboration with the Canadian Health Services Research Foundation, offers a unique opportunity for mid-career professionals—researchers, policy-makers, clinicians, managers and journalists—to spend 12 months in the United States to conduct a policy-oriented research study with leading U.S. health experts.

  • Stephen Samis, Vice President Programs, CHSRF, will discuss Canada's health system and policy challenges as relevant to learning from the U.S. health system.
  • Robin Osborn (Vice President and Director, The Commonwealth Fund) will discuss the Fellowship experience. Cathy Schoen (Senior Vice President, The Commonwealth Fund) will provide a brief overview of the U.S. health policy context.
