CHDS Adjunct Professors Uwe Siebert and Maria (Myriam) Hunink return to Boston each summer to teach in the Program in Clinical Effectiveness.

Professor Siebert’s first term course, RDS 286: Decision Analysis in Clinical Research, introduces clinicians and other doctoral and post-doctoral level students to decision analysis methods relevant to clinical decision making, clinical research and comparative effectiveness research. Professor Hunink teaches the continuation course in the second term, RDS 288: Methods for Decision Making in Medicine, which focuses on practical application of techniques in medical decision making, giving students the opportunity to apply the techniques learned to a case example of their choosing. Both are core courses in the Program in Clinical Effectiveness, a joint program of Brigham and Womens Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, geared particularly to clinicians pursuing quantitative and analytic skills for clinical research or health care administration.
