Residencies and Fellowships

The Department of Healthcare Policy and Research offers a two-year ACGME-accredited Residency in Public Health and General Preventive Medicine. Utilizing the facilities of both campuses of the New York-Presbyterian Hospital and its affiliates, the department offers myriad opportunities for research and a comprehensive educational opportunity for postgraduate studies in these areas.

The Department also offers a Healthcare Research Fellowship. This program provides one to two years of post-graduate training, including mentored research training, to physicians, PhDs, or other terminal degree holders interested in Public Health/Health Services Research. This training will either prepare individuals for an academic career in the field of Public Health and Health Services Research or will enable them to incorporate these disciplines into their primary specialty or area of expertise.

Participants in our residency and fellowship programs obtain a Masters degree in Clinical Investigation from Cornell's Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.

As part of the Department’s ongoing effort to help train its postdoctoral fellows and residents, the FLIP (“Fellows Life in Progress”) sessions were initiated to provide a forum for fellows and residents to present ongoing or planned research projects and to discuss related educational topics. In addition to the fellows and residents, program directors and faculty who supervise them or are involved in their research projects attend the FLIP sessions, as well as other faculty who can provide expertise to help with the design and refinement of their studies.
