Health Services Research fellowships focus on the multidisciplinary field of scientific investigation that studies how social factors, financing systems, organizational factor, technology and personal behavior affect access, cost, and quality of healthcare. There are many potential applications of this field for Med-Peds physicians.

Many of Health Services Research fellowships have T32 training program funding through the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).

Health Services Research fellowships generally offer an MPH or equivalent degree and allow some flexibility in clinical work and so could be well suited for Med-Peds physicians looking for clinical research careers. See also under the Generalist MedPeds Fellowships in the unique fellowships section of this Guide.
