  • CoHSTAR Announces Fellowship Opportunities; Applications Due by February 15

    The Center on Health Services Training and Research (CoHSTAR) has opened its latest call for fellowship applicants for 4 research opportunities. All fellowships have a February 15, 2019, application deadline. The positions are:

    • Full-time postdoctoral fellowships: Trainees may focus their activities on a unique research focus area or craft an individual experience that involves activities at 2 or 3 collaborating sites.
    • Part-time faculty fellowship: Faculty fellows will retain their faculty appointments at their home institutions while using CoHSTAR support to maximize their protected time for research activities.
    • Part-time faculty fellowship at naviHealth: The selected faculty fellow will retain her or his faculty appointment at a home institution while using CoHSTAR support to maximize protected time to engage in research activities as a naviHealth faculty fellow. NaviHealth is a care transitions and postacute care management company serving both payer and provider marketplaces.
    • Postdoctoral fellowship at Vanderbilt University Medical Center: This 2-year postdoctoral fellowship will support an analysis of registry and trial data, particularly data related to spine surgery and associated outcomes. The fellowship is funded jointly with Vanderbilt University Medical Center's Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation.

    CoHSTAR was established with a grant of $2.5 million from the Foundation for Physical Therapy. Funding for this initiative was made possible with a $1 million gift from APTA, gifts from 50 APTA components, and donations from physical therapists, foundations, and corporations with a shared passion for the field of physical therapy.


    • Once again an opportunity that only applies to those working in an institution. How about opportunities that would apply to clinicians in the real world? If you truly want evidence-based medicine, create opportunities for practicing clinicians that would like to be involved or do more with research. Many are interested but need help, direction and certainly financial assistance. There is a huge disparity between clinical practice and facility/university research.
