The IMPAACT fellowship provides advanced training in healthcare policy, administration and informatics related to the management of musculoskeletal pain disorders. The program aims to attract chiropractors of exceptional management potential and develop them into leaders in the analysis and administration of healthcare system programs related to musculoskeletal pain disorders with a focus on innovative nonpharmacological approaches. The goal of the fellowship is to prepare graduates for future careers in healthcare policy and/or administration.

Program Overview

The fellowship is a 2-year postdoctoral program conducted by the Yale Center for Medical Informatics in partnership with the VA Connecticut Healthcare System. Much of the fellow’s efforts will be devoted to electronic health records, clinical decision support, databases and data analysis, and quality and safety. Experiential learning will be combined with didactic classes and conferences. As part of the Program the fellow will pursue a Master of Public Health degree at the Yale School of Public Health.

The Program Director will work with each fellow to create an Individual Development Plan to guide training activities and allow for continuous development anchored to the program’s mission, goals, objectives, and needs, as well as the fellow’s career goals.


This program is made possible by a generous grant from the NCMIC Foundation.
