With over $25 million in extramural funds over the past five years, our health services research program is the largest in the nation directed to the care of children. We receive support from federal, state and foundation sources to conduct cutting edge health services research that impacts the organization, financing and delivery of health care to children. The Division is also home to the Child Health Evaluation and Research (CHEAR) Unit, a multidisciplinary research unit focused on child health services. The CHEAR Unit has core faculty from the schools of Medicine, Public Health, Social Work, Nursing, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Business, and Law.
In 2000, the National Institutes of Health initiated funding for a pediatric health services research fellowship in our Division. This is the first and only NIH-funded fellowship of this kind and is now in its 15th year of continuous funding.
Research faculty include fellowship-trained physicians and Ph.D. level faculty. Our research agenda includes working closely with state and federal agencies on projects to design and evaluate programs addressing the most pressing issues facing our nation's children.For more information regarding research in General Pediatrics and the CHEAR Unit, please contact Lisa Prosser, PhD, Associate Director for Research.
