Press Release Date: June 2, 2000

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) today announced it is accepting applications for the newly established Kerr White Visiting Scholars Program. This initiative provides collaborative research opportunities, linking both new and recognized health care research scholars with AHRQ researchers. Visiting scholars will have an opportunity to learn and use AHRQ databases, including the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) and Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP).

Applicants interested in the Kerr White Visiting Scholars Program can propose a general area of research interest or a specific project to be completed while in residence at AHRQ. Potential scholars are encouraged to contact Agency research staff for further information about topics of most interest. Positions are nonrenewable, and can be filled for a period of 1 to 2 years. Mechanisms used to hire scholars range from service fellowships to Intergovernmental Personnel Act (IPA) appointments. September 22, 2000, is the closing date for this year.
