The Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity is a one-year, non-residential fellowship program offered by the George Washington University. The first cohort of fellows was the class of 2017.

The Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity program is based at the Fitzhugh Mullan Institute for Health Workforce Equity.

The Institute was created to further research and education in health workforce equity.
