The Outcomes Research Workshop (ORW) is focused on clinical outcomes, health services and comparative effectiveness research, patient-centered outcomes research, and medical education, with an emphasis on the application or use of social science research methods. The workshop is highly interactive and provides opportunities for trainees, fellows, and faculty to present early-stage research ideas or preliminary results, to practice conference talks, or to use the time as a research or grant preparation working meeting with colleagues and senior faculty. The ORW ori! ginated over 10 years ago as part of the Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program and continues to be open to the University community. The workshop series is sponsored by the University of Chicago CTSA, CHeSS, and the Departments of Family Medicine, Medicine, Pediatrics and Surgery.
