Mentored Career Development in Comparative Effectiveness Research
Funded by: Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality
Project dates: July 2010 - September 2013
Principal Investigator: Braithwaite, Scott

Comparative effectiveness research is designed to inform health-care decisions by providing evidence on the effectiveness, benefits, and harms of different treatment options. This three-year research training program, the Comparative Effectiveness Research Training Program (CERT), prepared a cadre of physician investigators for careers in comparative effectiveness research. With close ties to NYU’s other schools and important NYC public healthcare delivery stakeholders, the program will address the critical deficiency of investigators committed to comparative effectiveness research focused on improving health decisions affecting America’s urban underserved populations.
