About the D&E Fellowship


We partner with the University of Chicago for the Health Services Research Training Program (UCANU) to train scholars and scientists in health services and healthcare delivery. UCANU draws upon our complementary resources, faculty and expertise to create new mentoring and research opportunities for predoctoral trainees. Each month, two trainees present their research at a joint UCANU seminar. The seminar encourages collaboration, fosters a peer-review learning environment, provides opportunities to practice presentation skills and offers feedback to the presenters on their research and analyses.
