Application Review (August 11 – 18)

A committee of healthcare and innovation experts at HFII will review each application and assess the candidate’s background. This committee will also consider the fellowship class as a whole with an aim towards selecting a multidisciplinary and diverse cohort in terms of professional expertise and experience, gender, race and background. Approximately 30 applicants will be selected.

Phase 2: Potential Interviews (August 19 – 25)

Dependent upon volume of applications, the Committee may request an interview with given candidates. Not all candidates will require interviews and not all those interviewed will necessarily be accepted as a fellow. Selected interviews may be performed via phone, videoconference, or in-person.
