Mayo Clinic announces 2020 Kern Scholars
The Mayo Clinic Robert D. and Patricia E. Kern Center for the Science of Health Care Delivery welcomed four new scholars to the Kern Health Care Delivery Scholars Program.
The Kern Health Care Delivery Scholars Program is available as a one-year program for clinically trained, doctoral-level Mayo Clinic fellows and a three-year program for junior faculty. The program seeks to prepare the next generation in health services research by leveraging social sciences disciplines such as epidemiology, statistics and sociology.
The Kern Scholars Program helps develop a workforce of highly motivated, exceptionally trained clinicians who have the research skills needed to assess existing health care delivery systems, to rigorously test different care models and to apply best practices — essential steps in providing evidence-informed and patient-centered health care.
