CUMC

Applied Health Care & Public Health Interventions

 

The scholarship of applied health care is the interaction between knowledge and its practical application. This area of focus covers activities related to clinical care in medicine, dentistry, nursing, as well as direct public health interventions in public health disciplines. It also could include developing or implementing new clinical or public health programs, and work in quality assurance, patient safety, applied epidemiology, etc.

The scholarly translation of evidence to practice and evidence-based clinical and public health interventions are examples of the scholarship of application of clinical and public health sciences. Faculty with this area of focus will be expected to be acknowledged experts in their clinical or public health discipline, to practice clinical disciplines or provide public health interventions and outreach informed by relevant new scientific discoveries. Contributions may be in the following domains; Provision of patient care or direct public health interventions, development/implementation of clinical or public health programs, interventions, and outreach at CUMC and beyond.

Applied health care and public health interventions involve the delivery of quality patient care, related patient service or direct public health service interventions. Expertise within the faculty members’ discipline should be evident, though leadership may not be predominant.
