Expanding National Capacity in PCOR through Training (ENACT) at the University of Pittsburgh
No events for the next 30 days.
The Expanding National Capacity in PCOR through Training (ENACT) Program is a tuition-free, multidisciplinary, comprehensive, and individualized career development program funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). We aim to train investigators from Minority Serving Institutions in Patient Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR).
The main objectives of the ENACT Program are to:
- Collaborate with Minority-Serving Institutions (Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science, Howard University, Meharry Medical College, Morehouse School of Medicine, University of Hawaii at Mānoa, and University of Puerto Rico Medical Science Campus.)
- Provide courses on fundamental and advanced methods, and experiential training in PCOR methods.
- Sponsor a one-year fellowship to immerse fellows in multidisciplinary PCOR, working closely with a mentor (content expert) at their site institution and a mentor (in PCOR methods) at Pittsburgh.
- Facilitate and support networking and mentoring relationships for investigators completing the training.
- Enhance long-term PCOR infrastructure at Partnering Institutions by developing a Leadership Circle with former ENACT fellows serving as the educational leaders in PCOR methods at each institution after the life of the grant.
