The diverse clinical and methodological expertise makes our COIN unique to the VA HSR&D program and invaluable to VA care delivery.

We explicitly recruit medical specialists to our respective Centers and have a large group of medical specialists trained in health services research and board certified in cardiology, geriatrics, palliative care, internal medicine, pulmonary, nephrology, gastroenterology, rheumatology, and psychiatry. These researchers provide insight into specialty care that complements the expertise of our primary care, nursing, and PhD investigators.
