About the Fellowship
The Thomas O. Pyle Fellowship was created by the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation and Harvard University in honor of Thomas Pyle, who was Chief Executive Officer of Harvard Community Health Plan for many years and a leader in the Harvard and Boston communities. The Fellowship is intended to support scholarly work that contributes to the development of health care policy at any of several levels - public, organizational, or clinical. The level of funding is based on the applicant’s experience and financial needs.
The Fellowship provides one year of salary support in accordance with the DPM Fellowship stipend scale; up to $5,000 for research-related expenses; and a professional allowance of $1,500. If there are additional salary requirements, please include this information in the application for consideration by the Committee.
We are dedicated to the goal of fostering a culturally diverse department committed to working in a multicultural environment. Candidates from backgrounds underrepresented in science and medicine are especially encouraged to apply.
