Apply for RWJF Fellowship on Reducing Medical Overuse

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and MacColl Center for Health Care Innovation seek applications for a nine-month fellowship program focused on reducing medical overuse, such as testing and treatments in which the potential harms outweigh the benefits.

RWJF seeks eight clinical value champions — physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and registered nurses — who work directly with patients in safety-net settings. Training is based on the Taking Action on Overuse framework, a road map to reduce physical, emotional, and financial harm caused by medical overuse. The fellowship includes:

  • in-person training sessions in Seattle at the beginning and end of the fellowship;
  • biweekly live virtual seminars;
  • a hands-on project designed to reduce an overused service in the fellow’s clinical setting; and
  • training expenses and a small stipend.

Applications are due by Dec. 3 to info@takingactiononoveruse.org.
