Evaluative Sciences: Research
Faculty members study a variety of health issues including health care quality improvement, patient decision-making, and determinants of health and disease. Some work with physicians to improve clinical outcomes for patients with heart disease, cancer, asthma, and other conditions. Others work with health care administrators to increase efficiency in the use of health care resources in hospitals and other health care settings. Some work with clinical scientists - geneticists, environmental scientists, molecular biologists, and social scientists - to increase knowledge about how to prevent disease and disability altogether.
