Certificate Program in Practice-Based Research Methods

We invite you to consider participating in the Certificate Program in Practice-Based Research Methods.  This unique training program is developing a new generation of independent practice-based research network (PBRN) investigators by providing training in concepts, skills, and methods for conducting practice-based research and building PBRNs.

The program was developed in 2015 by the eight AHRQ-funded Centers of Excellence in Practice-Based Research and Learning.  It is designed for individuals who aspire to become independent PBRN research investigators, and for experienced investigators who want to develop expertise in PBRNs.  Fellows will devote 4-6 hours/month to training activities over 10 months.

The program has four learning modalities:
1) Ongoing mentoring by an experienced PBRN investigator;
2) Participation in monthly training webinars taught by PBRN experts;
3) Development and presentation of a research concept paper for a PBRN study; and
4) Development and presentation of a refined Specific Aims section.

Please see the attached program brochures for more information.

The application deadline is April 22, 2016.  Apply online at http://www.collaborativeohioinquirynetwork.com/pbrn-certificate-program.html

Contact us if you have any questions about this exciting program.  Please forward this message to anyone who may be interested.
