SLUCOR Degree Programs and Courses
As a Jesuit institution, Saint Louis University is committed to research that makes substantial contributions to student development while advancing fields of science. SLUCOR embraces the university's educational mission through courses at undergraduate and graduate levels, student mentorship, training programs for School of Medicine residents and fellows, and directing the doctoral program in health services research / outcomes research.
MS in Outcomes Research and Evaluation Sciences
SLUCOR offers an online MS degree in Health Outcomes Research and Evaluation Sciences. While still in its early development as an interdisciplinary field, health outcomes research is making substantial contributions to evidence-based decision-making by patients, clinicians, executives, and government officials.
It integrates methods and content expertise from medicine, economics, biotechnology, health services research, and epidemiology. As a specialized area of health outcomes research, evaluation sciences focuses on the assessment and improvement of interventions within the context of real-world implementation. An accelerated MS in Health Outcomes Research as well as a duel MS in Health Outcomes Research with a JD is also offered.
SLUCOR's Dr. Leslie Hinyard serves as director of this program.
PhD in Health Services and Outcomes Research
SLUCOR offers a Ph.D. program in health services research (HSR) / outcomes research via the School of Public Health's program in public health studies. Doctoral training in health services research at Saint Louis University began in 1958 via the Center for Health Services Education and Research, a predecessor to the School of Public Health (est. 1991). A strong tradition of scholarship in the field of HSR has been part of the SLU Health Sciences Center for more than 50 years.
SLUCOR's Dr. Burroughs co-directs the program with Dr. Elizabeth Baker, professor of behavioral science and health education at the School of Public Health.
