The new Division of Neurology Clinical Outcomes Research and Population Science (NeuroCORPS) is a joint effort between the Department of Neurology and the Gertrude H. Sergievsky Center. NeuroCORPS will be one of the first divisions devoted to neurology-related outcomes research in the country. This new division will be primarily a research division and will capitalize on several resources available in the Columbia University Medical Center community including, the other divisions within Neurology, the Gertrude H. Sergievsky Center, the Department of Medicine, Medical Bioinformatics, the Mailman School of Public Health, the School of Nursing, the School of Engineering, and Columbia’s Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA). As NeuroCORPS continues to develop, areas of research activity are expected to include comparative effectiveness, cost-effectiveness, and health services research, as well as emerging approaches such as social network analysis, agent-based modeling, and decision analysis. All areas of neurological practice and care may be represented, and it is expected that this new division will provide opportunities and resources for research for junior faculty in many clinical areas.
