The NCSP currently consists of six sites, along with their affiliated VA Medical Centers: Duke University; University of California, Los Angeles; University of California, San Francisco; University of Michigan; University of Pennsylvania; and Yale University. While the programs vary in design and emphasis, each site offers a common core structure that introduces Scholars to the methods used in healthcare research. This includes formal coursework, individual mentorship, and guidance in project development. To learn more about the individual sites, please visit the pages below.
