Center for Pediatric Clinical Effectiveness (CHOP)

Director: Fiks, Alexander., MD, MSCE


The mission of the Center for Pediatric Clinical Effectiveness is to discover and disseminate knowledge about best practices in the management of pediatric disease. Led by Theoklis Zaoutis, MD, MSCE, the center provides infrastructure for training in and performance of clinical effectiveness research — research aimed at understanding the best ways to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases in children.

The center builds on the existing research expertise and infrastructure at Children's Hospital to create an environment and opportunities for the exchange of ideas among clinical effectiveness researchers, facilitate the performance of clinical effectiveness research through a pilot grant program and assistance with projects that use existing national and local databases, and educate the next generation of clinical effectiveness researchers in the methods of clinical epidemiology. In addition, the center aims to partner with other Hospital organizations to improve the care of our patients and disseminate research findings that define the most effective healthcare for children.
