Tideswell ELIA Accepting Applications for 2021-2022 Scholars
Tideswell at University of California, San Francisco and AGS Emerging Leaders in Aging Program is designed for advanced junior or mid-career health professionals with a clear commitment to the field of aging and a leadership role in a clinical, research, education or policy program focused on advancing the care of older adults. It is for those seeking to transform the field and lead the next generation of health professionals. We welcome applications from health professionals including, but not limited to physicians, nurses, pharmacists, psychologists, social workers, physical and occupational therapists, and non-clinicians with evidence of training or experience in aging. An academic affiliation is not required.
We are looking for emerging leaders committed to creating communities where ageism, ableism, classism, homophobia, racism, sexism, xenophobia, and other forms of bias and discrimination no longer impact healthcare access, quality, and outcomes for older adults and their caregivers.
The program, designed to enhance and leverage existing leadership skills, consists of activities from September to May, with the anticipation that the community of scholars from all cohorts will remain meaningful colleagues throughout their careers.
