The mission of the Center for Improvement Science (CIS) is to facilitate interprofessional collaborations through networking, team science education, and consultation in which all participants find deep mutual benefit.

The CIS drives the advancement of multidisciplinary collaboration and networking, promotes the use of team science principles, and consults with translational and interprofessional investigators and other innovators to help them navigate the many resources that are available throughout the CCTST partner institutions.  

We also build resources to support system change and the adoption and dissemination of performance improvements (Implementation Science) by providing access to expertise in health services research, outcomes research, community-based research, developing effective collaborations, and program evaluation.

A consultation call or appointment with a CIS navigator can save you a great deal of time and effort by identifying and finding resources to help you and your team.
