Fellowship positions available NOW for the newly funded ACCORDS Primary Care Research Fellowship at the University of Colorado. With funding provided by HRSA’s Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award Institutional Research Training Grant, the Fellowship is a collaborative training program between the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus (CU-AMC) as well as affiliated institutions Kaiser Permanente of Colorado (KPCO) and Denver Health (DH).

The goal of the Fellowship is to train post-doctoral professionals to become primary care research leaders addressing the nation’s primary care health delivery challenges. The Fellowship is built upon the extensive mentorship experience of the Director and the mentorship team, a curriculum developed over many years of successfully training primary care researchers, and strong methodological expertise in 5 key proposed areas of emphasis:

  1. Dissemination and Implementation (D&I) Science
  2. Economic analysis to assess value-based care
  3. Community-based participatory research (CBPR)
  4. Health equity
  5. Qualitative & Mixed Methods

Trainees will benefit from the breadth of our primary care research settings including practice-based research networks (PBRNs), an academic center (CU-AMC), an integrated delivery system (KPCO), and a nationally renowned safety net system (DH). In these varied settings, trainees will develop innovative research and the skills needed to improve the quality of primary care.

ACCORDS will train eight fellows, with the majority completing in two years, an includes an optional third year. Trainees will get a Master’s degree and a certificate in D&I science. They will complete mini-courses to supplement their coursework in the areas of emphasis as well as a career development curriculum. They will receive intensive mentorship from a primary mentor as well as a mentorship team and will complete 1-2 research projects leading to publication. They will take an intensive grant-writing class and write a grant proposal focused on extension of their research project.
