SLUCOR Doctoral Trainees: Future leaders in research, education and policy
The PhD program in Health Services and Outcomes Research offered through the Saint Louis University College for Public Health and Social Justice prepares exceptional students to become independent researchers who will advance our scientific understanding of key clinical and health service issues. The program is highly selective and accepts only a small group of students each year.
Students entering the program already possess graduate degrees in disciplines such as medicine, epidemiology, biostatistics, economics, informatics or the basic sciences. The program operates in an apprenticeship model, with students working closely with faculty on research beginning their first semester in the program.
In addition to their research training, students receive rigorous training in outcomes measurement, research methods, biostatistics, epidemiology, and medical economics as well as public policy and clinical medicine.
Our current students are leading research in a diverse set of areas, including research involving the effectiveness of pharmacotherapies for diabetes and cardiovascular disease, the development of new algorithms for analysis of national registries, and the impact of current organ allocation policies on transplant outcomes.Jiajung Chen, MPH
