A joint program of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, the Program in Clinical Effectiveness (PCE) is an intensive 15 credit summer program providing clinical investigators with fundamental training in Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics.

The PCE is designed for physician-clinicians, fellows and faculty, who are seeking quantitative and analytic skills needed for clinical research or are interested in health care administration. Local applicants must have a position in a clinical department in a Boston teaching hospital. Applicants from outside of Boston must be recommended by their affiliated medical school or teaching hospital. Typically PCE applicants have completed their medical residency training, however those who are completing a residency program which is greater than three years and includes time devoted to research training are also encouraged to apply. The PCE does not accept medical students.
