Health Services Research Program


The mission of the Health Services Research Program is to accelerate efforts to discover, develop, evaluate, and implement neurologic health-promoting strategies that are efficient, effective, accessible, and sustainable.


The University of Michigan Department of Neurology Health Services Research (HSR) Program is a national leader in neurology-specific HSR. We utilize a variety of research methods including community based participatory research, development and evaluation of decision support tools, large database research to study associations, define priorities and evaluate policies, and dissemination and implementation clinical trials. We have accomplishments in obtaining federally funded grants, foundation grants, participating in NIH study sections, mentoring trainees on T32 awards and faculty on K23 awards, chairing the American Neurological Association’s Health Services Research Special Interest Group, serving as members of the American Academy of Neurology’s Health Services Research Committee, section editors of Neurology’s Innovations in Care Delivery, and active participation in policy relevant committees including the National Quality Forum and several policy-focused committees of the AAN.
