The Milbank Fellows Program (MFP) is a year-long leadership program for senior executive branch and legislative state leaders who are committed to improving population health in their communities.

Throughout this year-long program for senior leaders, Milbank Fellows participate in three highly interactive in-person meetings and a series of virtual learning events. Fellows have access to individualized technical assistance for themselves and their senior teams on areas of interest in addition to a library of population health and public sector leadership resources.

Over the course of the program, Fellows:

  • Gain new knowledge about specific population health issues, interdisciplinary health and human services systems, and evidence-based approaches to improving population health;
  • Expand their personal insight and leadership capacities in support of defining and advancing a population health vision and agenda;
  • Create meaningful connections with a network of colleagues, both from within the cohort and the Milbank State Leadership Network, so they can leverage their new knowledge and capacities to take action in their states.

Convened by the Milbank Memorial Fund, in partnership with the Public Leadership Group, and featuring guest faculty with expertise and applied experience in state policymaking, this program supports up to 24 participants as they address challenges and opportunities in today’s complex health policy environment. The Fund covers all costs of sessions and materials, including three in-person meetings.
