NU-PATIENT K12 Faculty Training Program

NOTE: This program is now closed, however if you are interested in another K12 opportunity, please visit A Chicago Center of Excellence in Learning Health Systems Research Training (ACCELERAT), which is a K12 scholars training program established to develop the next generation of health system transformation leaders. The ACCELERAT program is administered by IPHAM's Center for Health Information Partnerships. 

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

Scholars were 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
