Gliklich Healthcare Innovation Scholar Program

Phone number forENT Education

The Gliklich Healthcare Innovation Scholars Program launched in 2013 with the goal of providing a transformative opportunity for young physicians to pursue novel and disruptive ideas and projects that might otherwise be difficult to undertake through traditional funding mechanisms. The program seeks individuals looking for a mentored experience in innovation and the opportunity to make an impact on healthcare treatments, delivery, outcomes, or education through a focused project, protected time, and the rich, collaborative environment of Mass. Eye and Ear/Harvard Medical School, nearby institutions, and other resources.

The program draws on the unparalleled resources of the Harvard community: its faculty, networks, and a broad range of potential collaborators and local entrepreneurs. The program is seeking motivated individuals with good ideas—ideas that will help shape their own unique experience at a premier, specialized teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School and impact healthcare broadly. Projects should be relevant to at least one of the departments at Mass. Eye and Ear, with key milestones that can be achieved during the period of funding. 

Innovation Scholars may be selected for either a full-time or a part-time commitment. Salary support will be commensurate with their post-graduate level and time commitment, and funding will be provided for miscellaneous expenses and travel.
