Faculty are encouraged to initiate human studies. Currently active studies are investigating nerve stimulation to reduce arrhythmia vulnerability, Long QT Syndrome, intravascular ultrasound, mechanisms of human repolarization, innovative coronary interventions, and novel echocardiographic indices of disease.
Care Research and Policy
Research programs focus on issues in health care access, quality and outcome of care, healthcare decision making, and systems of care and health policy. Faculty use health services research methods that borrow and extend qualitative methods from epidemiology, biostatistics, economics, sociology, and decision science. Formal training is offered through a masters program in public health. For more information, go to www.chrp.org.
