Our objectives:

  • To establish a multidisciplinary team of investigators with expertise across the spectrum of health services research
  • To foster collaboration among clinicians and health services researchers within and outside of the Department
  • To support educational and research mentoring programs that focus on evidence- and value-based practice, patient-centered outcomes and health services research
