I'll need either an Abstract or 3 key words not in the title to be able to route? - Abstract is listed on the Project summary page. but here it is
The goal of the University of Michigan site of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Scholars in Health Policy Research Program is to help develop a new generation of creative thinkers in health policy research within the disciplines of economics, political science and sociology. To achieve this goal we will provide an interdisciplinary curriculum and educational environment that instructs the Scholars about the U.S. health care and public health systems, and provide the resources and mentorship needed to design, implement, and complete health-related research projects that will contribute to both health policy scholarship and to their social science disciplines. The University of Michigan Scholars Program provides an interdisciplinary approach to health policy research, with an emphasis on the three social science disciplines of economics, political science, and sociology, along with public health and health services. The seminar series brings in national experts from the three disciplines to meet with the Scholars and present their current research. The current mentoring system at the Michigan program is predicated on the principle of flexibility. Given the diverse mentoring needs and desires of Scholars, the Michigan program offers its Scholars a wide variety of mentoring resources.

Funding Period: 08/01/2013 to 07/31/2015
