The Health System Impact Fellowship – CIHR is a program designed to support health services researchers. It provides highly-qualified doctoral trainees and post-doctoral fellows studying health services and policy research (HSPR), or related fields, a unique opportunity to apply their research and analytic talents to critical challenges in health care that are being addressed by health system and related organizations (e.g., public, private for-profit, not-for-profit, and Indigenous health organizations that are not universities) outside of the traditional scholarly setting, and to develop professional experience, new skills, and networks.

The IMAGINE Network is committed to partnering on this initiative to support the health system partner contribution for up to two (2) HSIFs for projects that are aligned with the IMAGINE mandate.

The applications are due to CIHR February 24, 2022 (institutional deadlines may be earlier). Each fellow requires a proposal, a health system supervisor, and an academic researcher.

To determine suitability of applicants for IMAGINE support or if are interested in submitting a proposal, please contact Aida Fernandes. For general information about the HSI Fellowship program visit:
