Dear Dr. Littenberg,

As the Associate Director of the Disparities Solutions Center (DSC) at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), I am writing to let you know about a year-long fellowship at our center that may be of interest to your fellows and qualified residents.

Now in its third year, The Aetna/DSC HealthCare Disparities Fellowship Program was created to develop health care professionals and leaders who will address racial and ethnic disparities in health care. The fellowship is based at the DSC which is housed within the Mongan Institute for Health Policy at MGH. Under the guidance of DSC faculty, fellows will conduct a research project to address racial/ethnic disparities in health care.  Fellows will be involved in our portfolio of work at the DSC, and receive support through access to resources and faculty associated with the DSC. Throughout the year, fellows will have the opportunity to participate in local and national conferences and seminars sponsored by the DSC.  At the completion of the fellowship, fellows will be equipped with the skills, tools, experience to be leaders in reducing racial/ethnic disparities in health care. 

The fellowship is open to health care professionals at the post-doctoral level (PhD), post-residency level (MD/MPH), or graduate level (RN/MPH, NP etc.).  As we are currently accepting application through March 12th, we would greatly appreciate it if you could share our fellowship opportunity with your fellows and qualified residents.  Strong applicants will have strong prior research experience or the equivalent through additional training such as an MPH.  Please refer potential candidates to our website, for more information. 

We appreciate your support and please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.

Thank you,

Alexander R. Green, MD, MPH
Associate Director, Disparities Solutions Center
Assistant Professor, Harvard Medical School
