The 2021-2022 AAFP Health Equity Fellowship is designed to develop family physicians into leaders who have subject matter expertise in the social, institutional, and cultural influences that impact health.
Fellows will be equipped as family medicine leaders who can facilitate change to improve their local communities and primary care.
Through this program, fellows will gain knowledge and experience in translating the concepts of health equity into clinical practice. Fellows will learn from leading experts in the fields of medical education, research, public health, and health care policy. With the support of mentors and AAFP staff, they will complete a capstone project at the end of the fellowship to demonstrate their achievement of the program’s learning objectives.
Please note: Travel and lodging expenses will be reimbursed up to $1,500 per meeting, per AAFP policy. No per diem or family travel expenses are allowed.
