AHRQ Patient Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) Institutional Mentored Career Development Program (K12): RFA-HS-13-008

The Mentored Clinical Scientist Development Program Award (K12) provides support to an institution for the development of independent clinical scientists. This program proposes to launch a multi-year large-scale effort to support the development of patient centered outcomes (PCOR) researchers in academic and applied settings (e.g., the health care delivery system, state and local governments, health plans, research networks). Applicant institutions must be well poised to directly provide or partner with those who can provide the needed didactic and experiential opportunities for candidates in sophisticated comparative effectiveness methodologies applied to PCOR. They must also have the capability to expose candidates to accelerated clinical effectiveness and outcomes research and to the translation, dissemination and uptake of evidentiary information for health care practice and decision-making.
