We are pleased to announce the availability of K12 funding for junior faculty or instructors who will join the faculty. The T-GAPP K12 program, funded by AHRQ and PCORI, is designed to advance the nation’s leadership capacity in deploying patient-centered outcomes research within learning health systems (LHS). The aim of this K12 program is to support junior, clinical faculty who seek academic careers as independent investigators in LHS/PCOR through training in the generation, adoption, and implementation of evidence that improves the quality and safety of health care.


Please encourage qualified and eligible members of your faculty to apply. AHRQ & PCORI require that we recruit at least 2 Scholars from outside institutions, so please consider both new and recent recruits to your department. We are happy to discuss any potential candidates should you have any questions.


Please note that the deadline for applications is July 1, 2019.
