National Clinician Scholars Program

The National Clinician Scholars Program (NCSP) at Yale is an interprofessional fellowship program designed to prepare a select group of future clinician leaders to improve health and health care in the US through scholarship and action at the national, state, and local levels. Now more than ever, collaborative leadership is needed in order to actively improve the health care system from within, as well as to partner across disciplines, health care settings, and communities in order to improve population health.

The NCSP is an evolution of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Clinical Scholars Program. The NCSP at Yale has retained the central values of the former RWJF program, including a commitment to teaching rigorous research design, ensuring Scholars develop a nuanced understanding of how the health system and social determinants affect health, engagement of those who can help apply research results, and emphasizing the outcomes and impact of research. The program has developed and refined a strong foundational curriculum in rigorous health services research and stakeholder engagement.  

There are four program sites: Yale University, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Michigan, and the University of California Los Angeles.
