Exceptional Young Physicians Named 2013 RWJF Clinical Scholars
Jul 18, 2012, 7:00 PM
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) this week announced the selection of 27 new RWJF Clinical Scholars—young physician leaders who will spend two years examining the delivery, impact and organization of health care, while receiving training in leadership, health policy, and community-based participatory research training.
The new Clinical Scholars will begin their two-year fellowships in July 2013. In addition to the usual participation of a number of primary care physicians, this year’s class includes four OB/GYN specialists, four surgeons, and a urologist.
The Clinical Scholars program, RWJF’s first grant program which this year celebrates its 40th anniversary, has more than 1,200 alumni across the country in every level of academia, government service, and clinical practice.
