Oral Health Faculty Development Fellowship
Funded by the George E. Richmond Foundation, the Oral Health Faculty Development Fellowship is a part of the Program in Oral Health, Systemic Health, Well-being, and the Social Sciences. The goal of the Fellowship is to promote the development of faculty at the University of Chicago who incorporate oral health into their research programs, incubate both basic and translational research projects to improve our understanding of oral health, and suggest promising pathways for policy and practice improvements in the field.
Patient Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) Faculty Development Program (K12)
Funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) K12 grant award, the Patient Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) Faculty Development Program promotes UChicago researchers interested in PCOR and supports their development into independent investigators. During the program, scholars participate in advanced coursework and receive mentorship from PCOR researchers at UChicago to advance their own research careers.
Eligible candidates have earned a clinical or research doctorate and have a junior faculty or instructor position by the time of appointment to the K12 program. Postdoctoral fellows and research associates may apply for the program; sponsoring departments must commit to appointing the candidate to a faculty or instructor position upon being selected for a K12 slot.
Summer Program in Outcomes Research Training (SPORT)
The Summer Program in Outcomes Research Training (SPORT) provides an intensive introduction to outcomes research for fellows and junior faculty and includes coursework in health services research, biostatistics, research methods, and clinical epidemiology. The program also offers participants opportunities to develop a research proposal that could form the basis of an NIH or other career development award. All SPORT participants attend the weekly Outcomes Research Workshop (ORW) as well as a number of other workshops and training opportunities throughout the summer.
A number of trainees have used SPORT as a way to jumpstart a master’s degree in Public Health Sciences (MSCP), but SPORT can also function as a stand alone program. View the SPORT 2019 Flyer here.
