Office of Academic Affiliations Advanced Fellowships

In collaboration with VHA Office of Academic Affiliations (OAA), HSR&D sponsors post-doctoral and post-residency training programs at OAA-approved training sites for fellowships in health services research and medical informatics. OAA provides stipends for post-doctoral fellows who are also supported by supplemental funding from HSR&D for research-related expenses and technical support. HSR&D currently has training sites for the PhD associated health professions training programs, sites for post-doctoral physicians in health services, and post-doctoral and physician health professionals in medical informatics. OAA and HSR&D have also initiated support for a post-resident fellowship program in health services research.. The training sites and contact information can be found on the OAA website:
