- Quality Improvement.
- Health Care Disparities and Vulnerable Populations.
- Translating Research into Practice and Policy.
- Patient/Family Centered Care.
This program prepares generalist physicians and other doctorally trained individuals for academic careers of scholarship in quality improvement, patient/family-centered care, and health/health care disparities, focusing on ambulatory care to address the health issues of families with children. It will:
- Attract highly qualified candidates, with at least half of trainees from underrepresented minority groups.
- Assure trainees' acquisition of core competencies to be independent health services researchers whose work is grounded in and influences health care policy, organization, quality and outcomes.
- Guide them to post-fellowship positions that foster their continued professional growth and the influence of their work in shaping health care and in training the next generation of health services researchers.
The 2- to 3-year program's well-integrated learning activities are individualized to meet each trainee's needs. Learning activities include:
- Formal coursework building on all trainees' previous training and, for physician trainees, leading to a Masters' degree at the Hopkins School of Public Health.
- Seminars and networking.
- Close mentoring in the development, conduct and dissemination of at least two studies, one based on a large-scale data set and one involving primary data collection.
A diverse faculty with an exceptional portfolio of extramurally funded research provides training. Our environment benefits from strong partnerships at the local, State and national levels.
