UH Research & Education Update | August 2023
The UH Research & Education Institute hosted the inaugural Certificate in Foundations of Health Services Research program from July 17 to August 4, 2023. Envisioned and developed by UH leaders Daniel Simon, MD, Marlene Miller, MD and Samudragupta Bora, PhD, this postgraduate certificate program provides knowledge and skills to early-career physicians and other clinicians committed to pursuing health services research. The primary goal of this three-week intensive, fast-paced 75-hour program is to deliver a comprehensive curriculum focused on the fundamentals of health services research methodology as well as broad skills to pursue innovative, transdisciplinary, and team science in a mentored research environment.
Faculty from Harvard University, University of Colorado, University of Pittsburgh, and Wake Forest University covered core topics in clinical epidemiology, biostatistics, healthcare quality and safety, implementation science, and health disparities. Additional workshops led by faculty from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, Kaiser Permanente Bernard J. Tyson School of Medicine, NYU Grossman Long Island School of Medicine, and the University of Colorado School of Medicine covered methods and approaches particularly relevant to health services research, such as economic evaluation, mixed methods, qualitative methods, and meta-analysis. Furthermore, nationally renowned faculty from Harvard Medical School, NYU Grossman School of Medicine, and the University of North Carolina School of Medicine who are currently leading major extramural-funded research delivered research presentations and shared insights into their path to success as investigators.
The inaugural class included 15 clinicians from various UH departments, including dermatology, gastroenterology and hepatology, hematology and oncology, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, psychiatry, surgery, and urology. Congratulations to the inaugural cohort of graduates who are dedicated to learning, networking, sharing, and implementing their new knowledge of health services research to expand on their research to better their departments, the care of their patients, and the well-being of our community.
