BIRCWH is a career development program (K12) for women’s health research. Through financial support, targeted mentorship, and educational programs, we are supporting the next generation of scholars. Located in the San Francisco Bay Area, the BIRCWH program is a collaborative effort of the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research (DOR), based in Oakland, CA. Focus areas include reproductive health across the lifespan, women’s cancers, infectious diseases, social determinants of health, metabolism and bone health, environmental health, and mental health, addiction, and cognition.
The Mental Health Research Network T32 Post-Doctoral Fellowship is a National Institute of Mental Health-supported, two-year fellowship program. Aspiring independent researchers are trained broadly in health systems/health services research with a focus on mental health conditions and services, as well as suicide prevention. Areas of particular interest and training are in clinical interventions, healthcare service delivery, big data, implementation science, comorbidities, health equity, and health policy. The overall goal of the program is to support fellows in the transition to becoming independent mental health services researchers able to pursue NIMH-funding to support research within health system settings. Fellows work locally alongside a primary mentor at Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research, Oakland, CA or the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, MI.
The TPMG Delivery Science Fellowship program is a two year, full time fellowship at Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research in Oakland, CA. Investigators and fellows in the Division of Research work on the cutting edge of delivery science, partnering directly with Kaiser Permanente physicians and clinical operations leaders to develop and implement innovative research and quality improvement projects for patient care, in one of the nation's leading integrated delivery systems. Fellows will have the unique opportunity to develop delivery science research and writing skills for presentations and publications while being mentored by experienced scientists. Investigators have access to rich data resources, including a robust longitudinal electronic medical record system, and they have the opportunity to translate research findings into the clinical care setting.
The TPMG Clinical Informatics Fellowship is a two year, full time fellowship at Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research in Oakland, CA. The focus on clinical informatics, the application of informatics and health information technology to care delivery, is exceptionally well aligned with our successful and growing Delivery Science fellowship program. The program goals for the Delivery Science Informatics Fellow will be to address critical clinical, healthcare delivery, and/or operational priority areas specifically by leveraging a broad set of existing and emerging informatics tools. These tools may include the electronic health record, data science and machine learning, clinical decision support, telemedicine, and/or user interface design, among others. Fellows will be closely mentored by an interdisciplinary team of clinician-scientists engaged in improving care delivery through informatics. During their training period, fellows will be expected to collaborate closely with leaders in our healthcare delivery system in order to accelerate the implementation of novel informatics-based approaches. This fellow will participate in the same structured curriculum as the Delivery Science Fellows and be expected to complete additional training tailored to this field
The purpose of this T32 postdoctoral training program is to help develop the next generation of researchers with the necessary skills to identify and overcome barriers to translating evidence into practice for patients with type 2 diabetes. The program is based at the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research in Oakland, CA and conducted in collaboration with research faculty from the Diabetes Research for Equity through Advanced Multilevel Science Center for Diabetes Translation Research (DREAMS-CDTR), the UCSF School of Medicine, and the UC Berkeley School of Public Health, with funding from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). T32 postdoctoral fellows will have the unique opportunity to develop translational and delivery science research and writing skills for presentations and publications, while being mentored by experienced scientists in diabetes care and prevention. Investigators have access to rich data resources, including a robust, longitudinal, electronic medical record system, and work to translate research findings into the clinical care setting within one of the nation’s leading integrated health care delivery systems.
The UroEpi K12 program supports junior faculty researchers from diverse disciplines who are committed to advancing understanding of the incidence, progression, risk factors, impact, and/or prevention and treatment of non-malignant urologic conditions. UroEpi scholars receive career development training and support to develop the skills and accomplishments necessary to become outstanding investigators capable of spearheading high-impact research programs in non-malignant urologic epidemiology. Potentially relevant non-cancerous urologic conditions or problems include urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, chronic pelvic pain, prostate enlargement, bladder outlet obstruction, congenital urologic conditions, sexual development disorders, urinary tract infections, dysfunctional voiding, urolithiasis, erectile dysfunction, vesicoureteral reflux, neurogenic bladder, interstitial cystitis, genitourinary syndrome of menopause, neurogenic bladder, nocturia, Peyronie’s disease, priapism, prostate infections, sexually transmitted diseases, urosepsis, and underactive bladder. The UroEpi K12 program is a collaboration between the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) and the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research, Oakland, CA. (NIH K12DK111028).
The postdoctoral fellowship training program in women’s and children’s health is a two-year, full time fellowship at Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research (DOR) in Oakland, CA. It is sponsored by our DOR and is training aspiring independent researchers broadly in epidemiology, health systems/health services and delivery science research with a focus on women’s and children’s health across the lifecourse. WCH postdoctoral fellowship will offer an individually-tailored program of career development and practical experience in a multidisciplinary team setting embedded in the health care delivery system. Fellows will have the opportunity to investigate health system data combined with clinical research data with the ultimate goal of providing findings that may lead to improved health and health care of women and children. Areas of particular interest and training are in cohort studies, clinical interventions, use of bigdata from our longitudinal electronic health records, and perinatal epidemiology.
