Institutional Career Development Program (K12)
Applications now open
There is a growing recognition that health care outcomes are as much a reflection of the systems that deliver medical care as the drugs and devices that are delivered and the individuals who prescribe them. The proposed Patient Centered Outcomes Research (K12) Scholars program at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania will recruit and train clinical scientists at an early career stage. We will link K12 Scholars with mentors and a multidisciplinary curriculum designed to produce leaders in the study of comparative health delivery systems and policies and their impact on patient outcomes. The University of Pennsylvania has substantial resources to support these scholars, including programs in several national research networks as well as strong multidisciplinary ties across the School of Medicine, School of Nursing, Wharton School of Business, and Annenberg School of Communication. Skills in research implementation and dissemination will also be emphasized.
Scholars supported through this program will complete mentored research projects that must emphasize specialized focus on patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR). For purposes of this announcement, PCOR is defined as the conduct and synthesis of research that compares the benefits and harms of different interventions and strategies to prevent, diagnose, treat and monitor health conditions in clinical practice settings to inform decision making. The University of Pennsylvania K12 program is specifically focused on evaluating interventions at the organizational or policy levels that may impact patient outcomes. The purpose of PCOR is to improve health outcomes by developing and disseminating evidence-based information to patients, clinicians, policy makers, and health care administrators, responding to their expressed needs about which clinical and health system design interventions are most effective for which patients under specific circumstances. Programs and scholars appointed to the programs must focus the content on health care delivery within the United States.
This institutional career development program is intended to provide for two years of continuous, full-time, 12-month support for one cohort of scholars, and is not renewable. Scholars should be committed to two years of training and to a career in PCOR that also aims at the integration of evidence into practice and decision-making in the United States’ health care system. Post-doctoral candidates with different levels of prior research training and at different stages in their training and career development may be appointed as scholars.
Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
