Eight Core Areas
The CCTS is composed of eight different core areas:
10th Annual Utah Health Services Research Conference:
Considering Data Quality in Health Services Research
Monday, March 16, 2015, 8:30 am – 3:30 pm
Health Sciences Education Building (HSEB), 26 S 2000 E, University of Utah
The Health Services Research Conference Program Committee invites anyone interested in health services research to attend the 10th annual Utah Health Services Research Conference. This includes: current/future researchers, policy makers, clinicians, administrators, public health practitioners, and members of the community. The goals of the conference are to promote health services research in Utah and to facilitate interaction and communication among individuals interested in patient centered health services research.
Health services research examines how people access health care, how much care costs, and what happens to patients as a result of this care. The main goals of health services research are to identify the most effective ways to organize, manage, finance, and deliver high quality care; reduce medical errors; and improve patient safety.

NEW! CCTS Grant Peer Review Program
The Utah Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) is pleased to announce a new service to provide pre-submission peer review for grant proposals. Three review cycles will be offered each year coinciding with the NIH schedule for grant submissions (Oct/Feb/June). NIH review criteria will be used to score each submission. Grants will be assigned at least one reviewer (potentially two). Formal reviews will be returned to the investigator on the first day of the month following the submission deadline for peer review.
