Get Involved

Our team can participate in several faculty development programs, which encourage in-depth conversation about health outcomes research and act as excellent networking opportunities. There are options for people at all levels of expertise, from didactic training to developing proposals to sharing knowledge with colleagues.

Research in Progress

In collaboration with The Center for Surgical Health Assessment, Research and Policy (SHARP), we at the Center for Health Outcomes in Medicine Scholarship and Service (HOMES) meet weekly to present, analyze and brainstorm about research and scholarship. In this safe environment, study ideas can be explored, ideas discussed, collaborations initiated and projects developed.

Journal Club

HOMES hosts a monthly journal club as a way to help affiliates and other clinicians and scholars learn and improve critical appraisal while staying up to date on new literature in our fields of interest. Full participation is encouraged. Each month, a volunteer will take the lead and host the discussion, providing a stimulating debate to broaden knowledge base and analytical review skill set.

K Club

In collaboration with SHARP, HOMES has initiated a group dedicated to post-doctoral scientists and junior clinicians and scholars who are in the process of applying for Career Development Awards (i.e., National Institutes of Health K awards). Here, you can gain feedback and support both on the art of grant writing and project design enhancements resulting in cutting-edge research.


At HOMES, we believe that collaborative research is the foundation of success. Within HOMES, we house specific focus areas for research, each with a lead faculty member able to offer individualized guidance and mentorship. The HOMES leadership team will connect faculty desiring research mentorship with a tailored team to foster growth and success. HOMES is committed to fostering exemplary research and professional development for its faculty.
