Time is running out to apply for the 2011-2012 Kenneth M. Viste, Jr., MD, Neurology Public Policy Fellowship. The fellowship enables a US Academy member to spend up to a year in Washington, DC, working as a member of a Congressional staff, committee of Congress, or in the Executive branch.
Recent fellows have been deeply involved in helping shape aspects of health care reform and provide professional insights as members of the neurology community. As a fellow, you also gain a great deal personally and professionally as you:
The Kenneth M. Viste, Jr., MD, Neurology Public Policy Fellowship carries an annual stipend of $90,000. This stipend may be supplemented by the fellow’s sponsoring institution or other extramural support. Up to $6,000 is available for relocation.
Applications are due by October 15, 2010. More details on the fellowship, which is sponsored by the AAN, the American Neurological Association, and the Child Neurology Society, can be found at www.aan.com/viste or contact Mike Amery at firstname.lastname@example.org or (202) 506-7468.
