Veterans Affairs National Quality Scholars Fellowship Program
In recent years, several General Internal Medicine
Fellows at the University of Iowa have paired their post-residency
training with VA National Quality Scholars fellowships. The two-year
fellowship allows physicians to focus on quality improvement issues and
health services research in a VA setting. The program includes didactic
training in quality improvement methods organized through Dartmouth's Center for the Evaluative Clinical Sciences .
The training introduces fellows to:
- The design, management and monitoring of quality improvement systems.
- The design and execution of quality improvement research.
- Healthcare informatics, particularly the Veterans Integrated Systems Technology Architecture. (VISTA)

To apply, applicants should send a cover letter describing their
experiences in quality improvement and a copy of their curriculum vitae
