The Health System Impact (HSI) Program provides highly qualified PhD trainees and postdoctoral researchers in health services and policy research/related fields with the opportunity to develop embedded research projects/programs that address the most pressing problems faced by health system organizations and to support evidence-informed decision-making.
HDRN Canada welcomes HSI Fellows from across the country who are interested in advancing and transforming health and health-related data work in alignment with any of our five Strategic Goals.
- Develop and Improve Services and Supports for Data Access
- Diversify and Harmonize Data, and Support Innovative and Privacy-Sensitive Data Use
- Establish and Strengthen Partnerships and Provide Leadership for Evolving Data Practices
- Strengthen Data Use to Improve Equity, and Support Indigenous-led Data Sovereignty
- Ensure Purposeful and Ongoing Public and Community Involvement
The scope of work can be tailored to align with the HSI fellow’s specific interests and goals. Examples include but are not limited to: developing efficient and scalable systems to support data harmonization efforts; advancing distributed/federated analytics; contributing to data-related collaborative and trust-building efforts with diverse members of the public; advancing principles of IDEA in data-intensive research; and supporting Indigenous-led data sovereignty. The HSI Fellow will also collaborate closely with a member of the HDRN Canada Leads Team, benefiting from mentorship and gaining real-world experience in our governance structure.
This opportunity is available to post-doctoral fellows only.
