A new elective course in the NUCATS Institute’s Master of Science in Clinical Investigation (MSCI) program explores the role of community engagement in clinical investigation, including its merits and challenges. Students will learn the history and principles of community-engaged research (CEnR), including the philosophical orientations that underlie CEnR such as critical consciousness and feminism, its various manifestations as participatory/action research, its application through an array of community-based participatory methods, and its delivery through community-academic partnerships. The course has community and academic course co-directors.
