Clinical Scholars Program
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill serves as the national office for the the Clinical Scholars program. The program is supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Clinical Scholars is a new national leadership development program that prepares health care providers to build an inclusive society where health is a guiding value and all people live longer, healthier lives. This shift toward a Culture of Health will be fueled by leadership, innovation, and collaboration from clinicians pursuing leading-edge research, policies, and practice.
The work of the Clinical Scholars is supported by Community-Campus Partnerships for Health, AcademyHealth and the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
Launch of the Program
Since November 2015, CCPH has been engaged in the Planning and Launch Phases of the RWJF Clinical Scholars Program. This opportunity will allow CCPH to be a leader in keeping the voice of the “community” at the forefront while training leaders on incorporating community in all aspects of this new program.
In an effort to promote community inclusiveness, CCPH is developing online training modules, webinars, in person training seminars on inclusiveness of community and will also provide technical assistance to teams interested in learning more about community engagement.
