  • developing and testing innovative methods with application to important questions in the delivery of health care;
  • training and mentoring students, fellows and faculty in these methods;
  • and serving as a resource to UAB faculty, health care systems, related organizations, government, and philanthropy to further disseminate outcomes research knowledge and expertise.
