Postdoctoral Executive Fellowship | PQA

PQA Executive Fellowship (applications due December 12, 2020): The PQA Postdoctoral Executive Fellowship serves to produce the next generation of leaders in healthcare quality through a full-time, 12-month program based in the thriving Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

Eligible candidates must hold a PharmD or MD within the United States, or plan to secure a doctoral degree within 6 months from an accredited program.
