About this Project

This “NU-PATIENT” K12 Scholars Program is designed to train 10 junior scientists to become leading scholars in high impact patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR). Scholars will be trained to conduct comparative effectiveness research (CER)across two critically important research themes: (1) patient-centered intervention, and (2) patient engagement and activation. Scholars will have a mentoring team and will choose a concentration while receiving broad training in key areas of patient-centered CER. Training will be organized around training cores led by established centers at NU, which will be linked by a new NU-PATIENT network of methodologists, clinical researchers and stakeholders. The program will be conducted under the leadership of an executive committee of senior PCOR leaders, working closely with an external advisory committee of stakeholders, and an evaluation committee that will oversee rigorous program evaluation.
