Workshop: National Clinicians Scholars Program—Creating Change Agents in Nursing and Medicine

Tuesday, March 10, 2020 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM (Add to Calendar)
AMC Krugman Conference Hall
Margot Kushel

The National Clinician Scholars Program (NCSP) is a post-doctoral training program for post-residency physicians and doctorally trained nurses. It aims train clinicians to serve as change agents driving policy-relevant research and partnerships to improve health and health care. The goal of the program is to cultivate health equity, eliminate health disparities, invent new models of care, and achieve higher quality health care at lower cost by training nurse and physician researchers who work as leaders and collaborators embedded in communities, healthcare systems, government, foundations, and think tanks in the United States and around the world. In this talk, Dr. Kushel will describe the program, with a focus on what strategies the NCSP uses to create change-agents.

By the end of the session, participants will be able to: 

  • Learn about the NCSP program, including what the program offers and who should apply.
  • Understand key elements of its success in creating change agents
  • Understand the role of academic health science centers can play in creating change agents for health care.
