NU-PATIENT K12 Faculty Training Program

The Northwestern University Patient-Centered Intervention and Engagement Training (NU-PATIENT) Faculty Scholars Training Program is an AHRQ-funded career development training grant designed to support the early research career development of junior faculty who will be engaged in comparative effectiveness and patient-centered outcomes research.

By learning to apply comparative effectiveness and patient-centered outcomes research methods, NU-PATIENT scholars will conduct high-impact research in one or more of the following areas:

Patient-Centered Intervention

  • Patient-centered outcomes measurement and application
  • Clinical trials
  • Health systems change

Patient Engagement and Activation

  • Health literacy and communication
  • Risk analysis and decision science
  • E-health and M-health

Scholars will be supported in a rich training environment, including a mentoring team (primary mentor, co-mentor and patient adviser) and four training cores built around existing centers of the Institute for Public Health and Medicine, Northwestern University Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute and the IPR Q-Center:

  • Stakeholder partnership, health equity and dissemination planning
  • Comparative effectiveness methodologies
  • Engineering and technology in healthcare
  • Pathways to scientific independence
