Workshops and Events

Outcomes Research Workshop

The Outcomes Research Workshop (ORW) is focused on clinical outcomes, health services and comparative effectiveness research, patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR), and medical education, with an emphasis on the application or use of social science research methods. The workshop is highly interactive and provides opportunities for trainees, fellows, and faculty to present early-stage research ideas or preliminary results, to practice conference talks, or to use the time as a research or grant preparation working meeting with colleagues and senior faculty. The ORW originated over 10 years ago as part of the Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program and continues to be open to the University community.

The 2018 summer workshop series will be organized by Liz Tung, MD, Instructor of Medicine in General Internal Medicine.  Previous faculty organizers include Hospital Medicine Faculty Gavin Hougham, PhD, and David Meltzer, MD, PhD; and General Internal Medicine faculty Elbert Huang, MD, and Caleb Alexander, MD.  The workshop is sponsored by the University of Chicago Institute for Translational Medicine, CHeSS, and the Departments of Family Medicine, Medicine, Pediatrics, and Surgery.

Unless otherwise indicated, all ORW sessions will be held on Wednesday mornings from 8:30-9:45 am in Room H300 (also known as W300). Access is easiest from Goldblatt entrance to the Medical Center at 860 E 59th Street. Turn  right at the information desk, take the A West elevator to the 3rd floor, and then take a right out of the elevator and walk to the end of the corridor. Refreshments are usually available.
