2015 Cohort of RWJF Clinical Scholars Announced
Aug 5, 2014, 3:00 PM
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Clinical Scholars program has announced the 31 physician leaders selected as the program’s final cohort. The new Clinical Scholars are physicians who were selected competitively from medical and surgical residencies across the United States. The 2015 cohort includes physicians specializing in primary care, emergency care, pediatrics, surgery, and psychiatry.
This is the program’s largest cohort in more than five years. Clinical Scholars spend two years examining the delivery, impact, and organization of health care.
RWJF will fully fund 10 of the 31 scholars. Through a partnership of more than 30 years, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will jointly support 13 scholars through VA Medical Centers affiliated with the participating universities. Those universities will fund six scholars, and for the first time, two scholars at UCLA will receive funding support from the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health.
