The British Embassy and British Consulates-General in China work closely with a number of key Chinese institutions and top UK universities to support the professional development of mid-career fellows in key thematic sectors through the following distinct research fellowship programmes.
- Chevening Healthcare, Health Policy and Health Reform Fellowship – at the University of Oxford. The aim of this 6-month fellowship is to offer officials at the National Health and Family Planning Commission the opportunity to spend time at the University of Oxford as a visiting fellow, researching an agreed topic in health and related social policy. Fellows are advised that their study should benefit directly from their time in Oxford and will contribute strongly to discussion around the ongoing health and social policy reform in China. Fellows are expected to complete a paper of up to 10,000 words in English but are also encouraged to contribute more widely in Chinese both during their stay and after their return. Recent topics include care for the visually impaired, the role of general practitioners, migration policy and care in the community. During their time in Oxford fellows are hosted by the University of Oxford Department for Continuing Education and have an attachment to Kellogg College. They receive both academic and pastoral support from Oxford faculty, access to all university libraries, seminars, lectures, and notification of all pertinent events and conferences.
Chevening Healthcare, Health Policy and Health Reform Fellowship are open for applications until 15 October 2018. Please click here to apply.
