Harkness Fellowship Information Session

Date: Thursday 2 November 
Time: 12:15pm – 1:00pm
Location: Verandah Room, Level 2, Surfers Paradise Marriott
Cost: complimentary for conference delegates to attend

The Harkness Fellowships provide a unique opportunity for mid-career professionals – academic researchers, clinicians, managers, government policymakers, and journalists – from Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, and the United Kingdom to spend up to 12 months in the United States conducting a policy-oriented research study, working with leading U.S. health policy experts, and gaining in-depth knowledge of not only the U.S. health care system, but also those for Fellows’ home countries.

In this lunch time session recently returned Harkness Fellows will talk about their experience in the U.S. and Harkness alumni will elaborate on how their Fellowship experience has enhanced their careers, what they have published and the ongoing collaborations that have resulted.

Grab your lunch and join this information session. This lunch information session is a first-come, first-serve basis and places are limited.
