The recent major reform of US healthcare policy poses many challenges for the healthcare system. Health services and outcomes research can play a crucial role in informing the policymaking process; developing clinical practice improvements; reducing disparities and costs; and shaping the future organization and delivery of healthcare. Northwestern’s graduate programs in Health Services and Outcomes Research aim to train students to conduct methodologically sound research, create new knowledge aimed at improving health services and outcomes, and secure grant funding to support their research.
