Research at NorthShore University HealthSystem

NorthShore University HealthSystem is recognized as one of the nation's top Comprehensive Independent Research Hospitals. With extensive funding from the National Institutes of Health, the NorthShore Research Institute houses approximately 1,000 clinical trials, and provides training and infrastructure support for diverse clinical and translational research projects.

Research and scholarship are core elements of the academic affiliation between the University of Chicago and NorthShore University HealthSystem. The Family Medicine residency takes full advantage of this affiliation by offering residents mentorship and learning opportunities on both campuses. Residents each complete a core rotation in evidence-based medicine as part of a curriculum that emphasizes skills in synthesizing and applying the research literature.

The NorthShore Practice-Based Improvement Research Network exists to preserve and improve human life by engaging clinicians, staff and patients in the pursuit, development and dissemination of knowledge needed to provide health care that is safe, effective, patient centered, timely, efficient and equitable. The network includes physicians and nurses from Family Medicine, Internal Medicine and other specialties. It is a member of the Agency for Health Research and Quality's PBRN Registry. For more information about the network, contact Ruth Ross.

NorthShore Family Medicine faculty members are actively engaged in research and scholarly activities that advance diverse elements of family medicine practice and education. The Pilot Grant Program at NorthShore University HealthSystem is designed to provide initial funds for the testing of new ideas and approaches via seed money for pilot research studies. The Research Institute and the Faculty Practice Associates wishes to give priority to those investigators without prior grant support and encourages proposals not submitted elsewhere. Each fiscal year awards will be made of up to $40,000 each. For more information contact Cheri Tatar.
