Design Fellowship

"Better Health, Less Spending"

CERC Moving to Expand Educational Offerings

CERC will utilize the 2020-21 academic year to integrate the fellowship within our newly expanded education and training programs focused on lowering the cost of clinically excellent care.

 

We anticipate that a new CERC fellowship program will be offered starting in the fall of 2021.


The Clinical Excellence Research Center (CERC) design fellowship provides an opportunity to become an expert in value-based health care delivery innovation.

Working as a multi-disciplinary team, fellows develop a solid foundation of design thinking for healthcare, gain experience developing innovative care models, and work directly with health system leaders and industry/business leaders.

Through a disciplined process based in human centered design methodology, the teams design new care models for a health condition associated with substantial disability and health spending. The design goal is an innovative health care design to maximally lower population-wide health spending while improving quality and experience of care.

Innovative, value-driven care models are designed through our fellowship program and then implemented in numerous partner healthcare systems/sites in subsequent years.  

In addition to the dissemination of new care models from CERC, we are also proud to be graduating change agents for value driven healthcare. Graduates from the fellowship have gone on to:

  • Pursue research careers in universities
  • Assume leadership positions in healthcare delivery systems
  • Work in industry or professional services firms
  • Help launch venture based healthcare startups
