Since our inception in 1994, the UC Davis Center for Healthcare Policy and Research (CHPR) has conducted interdisciplinary and collaborative research and research synthesis to improve health outcomes and services, educated the next generation of health services researchers, and assist policymakers in formulating effective health policies.

We are the only UC Davis-wide resource that supports interdisciplinary, innovative research on healthcare outcomes, access, quality and costs, and educates trainees in research methods on comparative effectiveness, healthcare costs, quality of care, and patient-centered outcomes. Our goal is to provide rigorous evidence, via our research findings and syntheses, which can be used to improve health outcomes and health policies—in California, across the U.S., and throughout the world. 

We are welcoming applications for an accomplished researcher and visionary thinker to serve as the next Director of CHPR. Apply >>
