The Alameda Health System Women’s Reproductive Health Equity Fellowship was established in June 2019 to study health inequities and healthcare disparities within Obstetrics and Gynecology, and contribute to scientific knowledge and best practice development aimed to improve health outcomes in patients receiving care at our safety net hospital.


Fellows will gain knowledge and experience in translating the concepts of health equity into clinical practice through rigorous scientific research and quality improvement projects identified by the fellow and in collaboration with fellowship faculty.

At the completion of the fellowship, trainees will have advanced skills in implementation science, building collaborative community partnerships,  a manuscript eligible for publication and opportunities to present at national and regional conferences.

Welcome to the AHS WRH Equity Fellowship!

We are excited to usher in an era of health justice and train the future change makers of tomorrow!

With a dynamic faculty dedicated to improving outcomes and a forward thinking mission, we look forward to teaching and learning from each other in the spirit of collective responsibility to the communities we serve.
