Health Policy and Social Science Research (HPSSR)

In 2009, the Department of Family and Community Medicine (DFCM) formed a new division called Health Policy and Social Science Research (HPSSR).  The rationale for creating this new division was to consolidate research activities among clinicians, researchers and faculty in the DFCM and to incorporate Health Systems Research (HSR) into the Division. HPSSR offers community assessments, feasibility studies, market analyses, customer satisfaction surveys, program evaluation, survey research, data requests (health, demographic, economic), census guidance and technical assistance for evaluation.

The development of HPSSR has established a strong foundation to build research at the UICOMR and to study important social science and health issues with scientific rigor both locally and nationally.
