Home Hospital International Fellowship

Program Overview

The Home Hospital International Fellowship (HHIF) seeks to contribute to the advancement of hospital-level care at home internationally, by providing a space for current clinicians and researchers to further the field. Through the HHIF, scholars will join the Ariadne Labs community in person to conduct research, share experiences, build new partnerships, and actively advise and mentor students and new scholars in the field

The HHIF provides the necessary space and support for professionals to focus on research and collaborate with peers to develop new ideas on how to advance the field. Fellows receive an academic appointment at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public health, have access to all the resources available at Harvard University and the opportunity to conduct site visits to observe and engage with local home hospital clinicians.
