Health Education England is launching a one-year pilot in population health this February, targeted at healthcare workers in the NHS. The pilot aims to develop and grow a workforce of professionals who will incorporate population health into their everyday jobs and will ultimately add to the ever-growing group of population health workforce from multiple disciplines. Population health skills are highly sought after, the fellows will be part of a group of professions that will encourage and support the development of public health approaches within the NHS and wider community.
Please get in touch if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
What is involved?
The pilot starts in February 2020 and will run for 12 months. Fellows will be seconded to the fellowship part-time (for two days per week) running alongside their permanent post.
Population Health Fellows will be placed with local organisations to work on projects addressing population health and will be encouraged and supported in the development of Public Health Approach within the NHS and wider community. The allocation of fellows to healthcare organisations is dependent on the projects the fellows are assigned to. The pilot involves a mixture of blended learning and contact days.
