From September 11-16, 2011, the Oregon Institute for Patient-Centered Comparative Effectiveness Annual Research Intensive will provide an opportunity for 40 promising investigators to learn comparative effectiveness research (CER) methods from national leaders in the field. The program begins with a six-day, on-site workshop at OHSU and includes ongoing proposal-development support throughout the year.
The Annual Research Intensive will involve active hands-on development of proposals for primary CER and will provide participants from across the country with the tools they need to become leaders in CER at their institutions. Each participant is expected to begin the session with a specific research question pertinent to their area of interest and relating to comparative effectiveness. By the end of the week, each participant should have a working comparative effectiveness research proposal to build upon and ultimately submit for funding. Physicians can also earn CME credits by participating – see details below.
This program is open to researchers across the US. Priority will be given to those who already have a strong foundation in research methods and wish to obtain additional skills in order to align their research with principles of comparative effectiveness. Applicants must have completed coursework in clinical research design or epidemiology, as well as biostatistics to ensure that all participants share a common working knowledge.
Space is limited to 40 participants and admission will be competitive. Learn more about the simple application procedure.
Registration Deadline: July 15, 2011
Participants can earn up to 34.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for participation in the Annual Research Intensive.
Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Oregon Health & Science University School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
