About the Fellowship
The Population Health Fellowship develops a pipeline of primary care providers with skills in leadership and complex population health management.
Fellowship time is split between our Care Connections clinical setting and our Accountable Care Organization, Lancaster General Health Community Care Collaborative. Interdisciplinary education — team development and modeling — is a critical part of the education.
Fellows achieve either a master’s degree in population health or a certificate in population health from one of our partner institutions, including the University of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences. Fellows are also expected to teach in the Lancaster General Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program.
