The Health Services/Comparative Effectiveness Research Training Program (HSR/CERTP) at UAB  is a combined fellowship mentored research training program in health services & outcomes research and comparative effectiveness research (Kenneth Saag, MD, MSc, PD/PI; Monika Safford, MD, Co-Director).

Skills development will include exposure to relevant epidemiological, statistical, experimental, and quasi-experimental methodologies, analysis of large data sets, health outcomes assessment, and economic evaluation, all with an emphasis on the practical application of outcomes research methodology.
