Postdoctoral Program in Clinical Research and Medical Informatics (TL1)
The ITM and the Center for Health and the Social Sciences (CHeSS) launched a new translational research training program in October 2017 that offers more awards, a new curriculum, and stipend funding to offset tuition and living expenses.
With the launch of the new TL1 Postdoctoral Program in Clinical Research and Medical Informatics, participants from any of the six ITM institutes can now choose either a clinical research or medical informatics pathway and take advantage of the corresponding master’s degree programs at the University of Chicago and Rush.
Participants will also take advantage of grant writing workshops, translational research seminars, networking opportunities, and more during their time in the program.
Postdoctoral Specialized Training Program in the Demography and Economics of Aging (NIA T32)
The Specialized Training Program in the Demography and Economics of Aging is funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) grant, #T32000243. Since its inception during the 1994-95 school year, the program has consistently produced productive and engaged young scholars in the field of aging research and demography. The program is designed to train graduate students interested in the demography and economics of aging through the development of basic and applied research, and policy-making, and analysis.
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.
UCANU Health Services Research Training Program (T32)
The University of Chicago and Northwestern University are partners in the University of Chicago and Northwestern Health Services Research Training Program (UCANU HSRTP), which provides training to scholars and researchers in health services and health care delivery. Funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s (AHRQ) National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Research T32 Training Grant, UCANU HSRTP draws upon the complementary resources, faculty, and expertise at each university, while creating new mentoring and research opportunities for predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees.
