The growing and energized Duke-Margolis Postdoctoral Associates & Affiliated Fellows Program, led by Marianne Hamilton Lopez,  aims to advance the careers of tomorrow’s health policy leaders by offering a range of opportunities for those early in their research and/or clinical careers, with an interest in, and commitment to, health policy.

The Center’s program offers three different opportunities for in-depth, hands-on training; mentorship from leading health policy experts; and study of complex, real-world health policy problems with a dedicated team of Duke researchers and colleagues. The program includes:

  • Duke-Margolis Postdoctoral Program in Health Policy, a two-year experience that aims to advance critical health policy research while building a pipeline of well-trained experts able to translate scientific research into policy solutions.
  • Health Equity Policy & Primary Care Fellowship, a one-year program in collaboration with the Duke Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, that aims to equip clinicians with the knowledge and experience to translate the concepts of health equity and health policy to improve their clinical practice.
  • National Clinician Scholars Program at Duke University, which trains nurse and physician researchers to become change agents driving policy-relevant research and partnerships to improve health and health care.

The Postdocs and Fellows selected for these prestigious opportunities will engage as a cohort during their time at Duke on research, health policy-focused programming, journal clubs, and seminars. Duke-Margolis welcome them and the new Margolis Scholars at a special August 27 orientation organized by the Center’s Education team.
