The Health System Impact (HSI) Fellowship (for doctoral trainees and post-doctoral fellows) provides highly-qualified doctoral trainees and post-doctoral fellows studying health services and policy research (HSPR), or related fields, a unique opportunity to apply their research and analytic talents to critical challenges in health care that are being addressed by the health system and related organizations (e.g., public, private for-profit, not-for-profit, and Indigenous health organizations that are not universities) outside of the traditional scholarly setting, and to also develop professional experience, new skills, and networks.

The remaining time (up to 40%), is protected to continue with their doctoral program commitments.
*The maximum amount per doctoral award is $50,000 per year for up to 1 year. Of this:
01. Stipend: $45,000
02. Professional development training and research allowance: $5,000
* Post-doctoral fellows receive a paid two-year experiential learning opportunity where they are embedded in their health system partner organization for at least 70% of their time focused on their impact-oriented program of work. The remaining time (up to 30%), is protected for academic research.
* The maximum amount per post-doctoral award is $155,000 in total for 2 years. Of this:
01. Stipend: $70,000 per year
02. Professional development training and research allowance: $7,500 per year
