T32 Training Program in Health Service and Outcomes Research for Aging Populations
The Health Services and Outcomes Research for Aging Populations T32 Training Program at Johns Hopkins University seeks to produce the next generation of scientists with rigorous training in person and family-centered health services and outcomes research with a focus on older adults.
This Cross-School program draws on the rich resources for research in health services, health economics, gerontology, nursing, health informatics, and geriatrics across the Johns Hopkins University, including its Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH), School of Medicine (SOM), and School of Nursing (SON). The HSOR for Aging Populations Training Program is co-led by Program Directors, Drs. Jennifer Wolff and Cynthia Boyd, and supported by a large group of core and affiliated faculty members. Faculty provide wide-ranging expertise and experience in research and training related to health economics, disability, frailty, long term services and supports, shared decision making, health disparities in older adults, advance care planning, care management, use of health IT to support patients and caregivers, palliative care, vision and hearing impairment, cancer screening and care, mental health, cognition, and transitions of care.
Through a combination of didactic training, a year-long practicum, mentored research experiences and integrative activities, the Training Program in HSOR for Aging Populations prepares graduates to assume leadership roles in academic research or in other research settings including national, state and local government agencies whose mission affects older adults.
