CHDI and MEDx Pilot Research Grant

Up to $50,000 to one research team that includes one PI from the School of Medicine and one PI from Pratt School of Engineering

Application deadline: June 5, 2018.  

Population health summer courses available

Distance-based classes from May 9–August 10, 2018, with three days of in-class instruction from May 9-11. CLP-214: Population Health Management Approaches (newly updated) and CLP-204: Leading in a Chaotic Environment.

e-Consent now available in REDCap

eConsent is available via REDCap, giving study teams a new tool to use as part of the informed consent process for minimal risk studies. This functionality provides the ability to consent remote participants or participants in clinic via tablets or touchscreen device. Participants will have the capability to sign electronically with a stylus, mouse, or finger. Once the consent form is submitted, participants will receive an email that includes a PDF attachment with a copy of the signed consent form.

Information about the process can be found on the DOCR website. While this is a great new tool, it may not be appropriate for all study populations. If you would like receive consultations about best practices and tools for your study’s recruitment, please reach out to the Recruitment Innovation Center.
