Research Overview

The Division's faculty members have diverse research interests, including health services research, clinical epidemiology, medical ethics, medical education, and medical informatics.

Faculty members concentrate their research efforts in the "Health Evaluation Sciences." Historically the most important research activity in the division is Health Services Research. Many faculty members use the method of Clinical Epidemiology to study related issues and several faculty members have pioneered the use of quantitative methods to study bioethical issues. The division's research program has established the Center for Health Equity Research and Promotion (CHERP) at the Philadelphia VA Medical Center and the Center for Health Incentives, a joint endeavor between the Division and the Leonard Davis Institute for Health Economics.
