CHSR Educational Activities & Seminars:
Work in Progress sessions provide opportunities for fellows and junior faculty to present research in progress and gain valuable feedback on their work. These weekly sessions are well-attended by an interdisciplinary group of trainees and faculty. Thus, they also provide participants with exposure to other researchers at Vanderbilt and the VA, and facilitate networking with colleagues who have similar or complementary interests.
The monthly Biostatistics Conference Series provides ongoing education in contemporary methodological issues in biostatistics related to HSR. The series is led by the CHSR Biostatistics Director, Dr. Robert Greevy, who is also available to provide consultative services related to study design, data collection, data management, analysis, and presentation of results.
These weekly seminars are hosted by the Center for Clinical Quality and Implementation Research, which is supported by CHSR. CCQIR serves as the nexus for implementation research and education at VUMC, bringing together more than 30 core faculty members from the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Management. The Scholarly Series provides continuing education in improvement science, implementation science, and leadership skills through a combination of didactic sessions, workshops, and journal clubs.
