Overview of Durham HSR&D COIN Post-Doctoral Fellowship Program
The Center for Health Services Research in Primary Care, Durham VA Health Care Center, in collaboration with the Duke Division of General Internal Medicine and Department of Population Heath, offers fellowships for MD and PhD scholars with an interest in training in health services research. The fellowship is designed as a two-year fellowship. An additional third year of funding may be available for qualified fellows. Fellowship training grants are funded by the VA Office of Academic Affairs (OAA).
The primary goal of the post-doctoral fellowships is to perform high-quality, mentored health services research. Projects often include: analysis of existing data, either from health services clinical trials performed by investigators in the Center or from large administrative VA databases; evidence syntheses, including meta-analyses; pilot tests of interventions; and/or brief, focused studies that collect qualitative or quantitative primary data from patients or physicians.
Fellows will identify a mentorship team before or early into the fellowship, including a primary mentor from among the core faculty of the Center. Mentoring teams commonly include both an MD and PhD faculty member. The primary mentor will work closely with the fellow to assure adequate quantity and quality of research during the fellowship. The following core faculty members are typically involved in mentorship teams:
Kelli D. Allen, PhD
Hayden B. Bosworth, PhD
Nicole Hastings, MD, MHS
George L. Jackson, PhD, MHA
Matthew Maciejewski, PhD
Eugene Oddone, MD, MHSc
Dawn Provenzale, MD, MHS
Valerie A. Smith, DrPH
Karen Steinhauser, PhD
Christi S. Ulmer, PhD, CBSM
Courtney Van Houtven, PhD
John W. Williams Jr., MD
William S. Yancy Jr., MD, MHSc
All fellows will participate in a professional development seminar series. This series involves weekly, one-hour discussions addressing a variety of career development topics and provides opportunities for fellows to engage with one another and share works in progress.
Our goal is to train elite health service researchers. Candidates should want to develop along that pathway until they become principal, grant-writing investigators. We hope to transition our fellows to research-based faculty positions upon completion of the fellowship.
Check out information about our fellowships on Duke Division of General Internal Medicine's Post-Doctoral Fellowship Training page.
We have trained more than 100 fellows in our 30-year history, including many leaders in Health Services Research and many of our core faculty.
