About us

The University of Washington two-year National Research Service Award (NRSA) Fellowship trains individuals with an interest in pursuing research and academic careers in the primary medical care disciplines of general internal medicine, family medicine, and general pediatrics. Established in 1988 with a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the fellowship is designed to provide methodologic skill acquisition and research experience with established investigators, the 2-year program usually includes an MPH degree in Epidemiology or Health Services from the UW School of Public Health.

This fellowship is not currently accepting applications.

Proven success

Since 1988, our fellows have been uniformly successful in completing fellowship program requirements, including completing mentored research projects and earning MPH or MS degrees. Our success rate has been impressive, 100% of our fellows have successfully completed the 2-year research training program. Most gratifying are the comments our graduates share about their fellowship experience and the contributions it has made to their careers.

I really valued the MPH coursework and the mentorship I received during my NRSA fellowship. I was able to get the research skills from UW coursework and then apply them to "real" projects (rather than just class assignments with hypothetical data). My mentors were great and really encouraged me to think about my long term research plan and what steps I needed to take to get there. - former fellow
