Advanced Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) classes give you the skills and knowledge to build strong community partnerships that both help accelerate your studies and improve the health of the people who will be most affected by your findings.
This team approach to research involves community members in all stages of the research process, giving both academic researchers and the general public equal input in everything from study design to the best ways to recruit trial participants.
ITM investigators Deborah Burnet, MD, and Doriane Miller, MD, created this FREE six-session course that is held Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters to put researchers at the forefront of community partnerships and transparent research. In 2015, the program partnered with Research In Progress (RIP) seminar series hosted by the Section of General Internal Medicine and supported by ITM partner CHeSS and the Section of Hospital Medicine. CBPR is also a component of the ITM’s Community and Collaboration cluster.
These RIP seminars provide an opportunity for researchers to present current research projects and to receive feedback on future steps. RIP has hosted many presenters from both UChicago and universities across the country.
