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 workshop is sponsored by CHeSS, the University of Chicago Institute for Translational Medicine, the Biological Sciences Division, and Healthcare Delivery Science and Innovation (HDSI). Funding is also provided through the NIA P30 Center on Healthy Aging Behaviors and Longitudinal InvestigationS (CHABLIS) (grant number P30AG066619).

Unless otherwise indicated, all ORW sessions will be held on Wednesday mornings from 8:30-9:30 am via Zoom.
