Training Programs

Columbia University School of Nursing is training the next generation of nurse scientists through two institutional training grants funded by the National Institute of Nursing Research which support predoctoral and postdoctoral research trainees.

CER2 Training Program - Comparative and Cost-Effectiveness Training for Nurse Scientists

Principle Investigator: Dr. Patricia Stone
Grant Number: T32 NR014205
Grant Support: Supports 2 predoctoral and 3 postdoctoral trainees annually

This training program, currently in its first competitive renewal, provides an opportunity to train nurse scientists in comparative and cost-effectiveness research, fields of scientific inquiry that employ innovative methods to generate knowledge aimed at improving quality and efficiency by informing the everyday decisions confronting clinicians, patients, purchasers, and policymakers.


RHeaDI Training Program - Reducing Health Disparities Through Informatics

Principle Investigator: Dr. Suzanne Bakken
Grant Number: T32 NR007969
Grant Support: Supports 4 predoctoral and 3 postdoctoral trainees annually

This training program, currently in its third competitive renewal, provides research training in informatics. It covers data science-enabled precision medicine approaches consistent with the National Institutes of Health's broad definition of precision medicine as an emerging approach that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle.
