About Us

Health for America (HFA) at MedStar Health inspires the best and brightest young professionals to tackle the nation’s most pressing health challenges through innovation. HFA grants paid, 11-month fellowships to an interdisciplinary team of four professionals within three years post-bachelor's degree, offering them unmatched learning experiences that center on health, design, entrepreneurship, and leadership.

HFA is embedded in MedStar Institute for Innovation (MI2) in Washington, D.C. to make a difference by advancing three main goals: motivating next-generation leaders to focus on health, creating novel solutions that improve health outcomes, and increasing innovation capacity in the health system. 1776, a Washington, D.C.-based global startup incubator and seed fund, also supports the program and offers workspace for HFA fellows.
