Seminars & Education

One of the key elements of the COHO and COR missions is to aid in the training of researchers that may contribute to health services research.  Among the educational opportunities offered is the Primary Care Research Fellowship (led by Dr. Alison Kempe), which provides 2-year training programs for physicians in the specialties of general internal medicine, general pediatrics, and family medicine. The Surgical/subspecialists Clinical Outcomes Research (SCORE) Fellowship​​, also led by Dr. Kempe, is a two-year fellowship that will provide existing or new faculty with the building blocks to conduct clinical translational or outcomes research and, in the future, to be successful in obtaining extramural funding.

COR and COHO faculty also exhibit a strong dedication to mentorship, coaching and instruction for both students and junior faculty.  Discussion sessions are held routinely to present on-going projects, build knowledge among colleagues, and exchange lessons learned in methodological and technical approaches.  Our tradition of standing s​eminars allow students, junior faculty and research discover new ideas, methods, findings and publication issues.  The presentations also allow faculty and staff to present and teach about their research methods and findings.

COHO and COR host several ongoing seminars and trainings including the Monthly COHO/COR Research Meeting, Qualitative Research seminars (including Qualitative Research Methods Forum), and training on ATLAS.ti software. 


​Research meetings feature presentations of various study topics, followed by discussion of findings.

The Qualitative Research Methods Forum (QRMF) is a community of researchers, faculty, students, and organizations focused on the practice and development of qualitative health research. We are dedicated to building interdisciplinary qualitative research knowledge and skills through multidirectional exchanges of methodological insight, expertise and resources. As an innovative, inter-institutional community of practice, we seek to support the development and implementation of translational and health disparities research through the use of qualitative methodologies.

QRMF meets on the 2nd Thursday of the following months: February, April, September, and November. All presentations are at 12 Noon-1 PM. Participants are welcome to attend either in person or via webconference.  To join the conference via web, please contact
