Formerly the Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (CE&B)

Welcome to the Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence, and Impact (HEI), formerly the Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics (CE&B). Recognizing that the CE&B name captured only some of the depth and breadth of disciplines and expertise in the department, we formally changed its name effective January 1, 2017.

The name is outcomes focused: we produce, synthesize, package, share, and support the best available research evidence in the health and health-related fields, and we undertake a variety of initiatives designed to achieve impacts at all levels within as well as across health systems. The name effectively connects us to the department's history in evidence-based medicine and the global impact that this and other departmental initiatives have had. Moreover, the new name captures the department's strategic goal of extending its leadership in developing new health research methods, generating and synthesizing actionable research evidence, and achieving impact.
