NHMA Resident Leadership Program- Deadline Extended 2/15/11

January 21, 2011

NHMA Resident Leadership Program

For more information and the application go to this link.

http://www.nhmamd.org/content/nhma-resident-leadership-program

Deadline Extended from 1/31/11 to 2/15/11.

The purpose of the NHMA Resident Leadership program is to promote the development of leadership potential of young resident physician members of the National Hispanic Medical Association. The emphasis is on the knowledge and skills necessary to take a leadership role in Federal and state health policy development and/or academia and focus on issues of importance to the health of the Hispanic community. The sponsors are the Health Resources and Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the National Hispanic Medical Association. Approximately 20 residents are selected each year and applications are solicited from among the association membership. A committee consisting of association officers and faculty makes selection. The primary selection criteria will be leadership potential as evidenced in work experience and other community activities. Appropriate letters of recommendation are part of the application package. Residents are expected to arrange to be given time off from work to participate in the program. Expenses for the residents related to attending the NHMA Conference and the California or New York Institutes will be paid.

In the Leadership program, talented Hispanic physicians receive support to enhance their leadership capability, increase understanding of current key national/state health policy issues, develop innovative perspectives on solutions to critical issues in current public services affecting Hispanic populations, and to develop and present a proposal for policy action to improve health care in the Hispanic community. In addition, the program will provide residents the opportunity to develop a unique network with national and state experts in health policy and public service careers and with academic leaders, communicate with colleagues across the nation via Internet, and to participate in the development of future NHMA initiatives in health policy.

In the year 2005, Hispanics became the largest ethnic minority in the United States. One out of every three Hispanics have no health insurance. Hispanics are 65% Mexican American, 11% Puerto Rican, 8% Cuban, and 16% Central and South American and from other Spanish -speaking countries. They are subjected to a health system with limited knowledge of the Hispanic culture and language. Hispanic physicians number about 4% of the physician workforce in the United States. Studies have shown that Hispanic physicians, in general, provide more medical care to Hispanic patients than to non-Hispanics and serve as the safety net, along with community based clinics, for their communities in urban, rural, and U.S.- Mexico border areas of the nation. In addition, Hispanic medical faculty are beginning to engage themselves in the study of health issues and their impact on Hispanics.

The proportion of Hispanics employed in the senior executive management of the Federal government is significantly lower than the proportion of Hispanics employed in the civilian workforce. In 1996, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services established the “Hispanic Agenda for Action” to increase the employment of Hispanics in career and advisory capacities and to enhance the sensitivity of HHS programs for Hispanic customers. Too few Hispanic physicians in senior executive management positions of the Federal government is a major barrier to achieving access to quality health care for all Americans.

The Orientation and Introduction Session will be a one-day session on March 17, 2011 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel, Washington, DC in conjunction with the NHMA 15th Annual Conference, “Health Care Transformation to Increase Prevention and Health Promotion for the Hispanic Community” and taught by members of the faculty. A Summer Institute will be held for ten residents in New York in May and in August for ten residents in Sacramento, California.

NHMA is now accepting applications for the 2011 Resident Leadership program. The Deadline for submitting the applications is March 1st. To download an application, please click here. The application is also available as an attachment in Word format at the end of this page.
