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 seminars 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.
