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 2019 summer workshop series will be organized by Kelsey BogueMA, Associate Director of Training Programs & Communications.  Previous faculty organizers include Hospital Medicine Faculty Gavin Hougham, PhD, and David Meltzer, MD, PhD; and General Internal Medicine faculty Liz Tung, MD, MS, 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 8:30-9:30 am via a Zoom call.
