Bringing Clinicians Up To Speed On Stats And Business Is Goal Of Nih Grant To Emory University Center For Clinical Evaluation Sciences

Center faculty are designing curriculum for an intense, one-week workshop that will provide clinicians an overview of population-based research and its value in answering research questions that may be applied to their own patients and practices.

Epidemiology, health care economics, informatics and outcomes research will be taught by center staff as well as other faculty from Emory?s medical, public health and nursing schools, Atlanta?s Veterans Affairs Medical Center and Morehouse School of Medicine
