Pitt Nursing Partners to Create Unique Student Fellowship

The School of Nursing is partnering with GetWellNetwork’s O’Neil Center to create a nurse scholars fellowship program at Pitt. This fellowship will provide doctoral students with an opportunity to collaborate with O’Neill Center thought leaders, clinical experts, and researchers in the field of patient-family engagement. Up to two doctoral candidates will be selected annually to participate in this one-year fellowship, which will include mentoring by Pitt Nursing faculty and O’Neill Center researchers, as well as completion of a scholarly project in a real-world setting. The fellowship will advance knowledge and understanding of the relationship between patient engagement and outcomes, translating patient engagement theory into health care management, and the development and impact of patient-facing technology.
