Catalyze Innovation that Advances Health

Telehealth and Integrative Medicine


2017-2018 Health for America Fellowship



The 2017-18 fellows are individually embedded within “internal startup” teams working with MI2 to support and explore opportunities within two priority focus areas: integrative medicine and telehealth.


The fellows will work closely with MedStar colleagues and mentors in these domains, dividing their time between working on assigned projects and proposing new areas for impact.

Fellowship Highlights

  • In-depth learning with MedStar teams, including shadowing, simulations, and research
  • Local and national conference opportunities
  • Professional development resources, including mentorship from experts within MedStar and 1776
