CERC's fellowship curriculum begins with an intensive “boot camp” training in design methods and other tools for understanding how to enhance the value of healthcare delivery. It is followed by review of relevant literature and a period of direct observation of care delivery at sites nationally and – at times – internationally. Teams then are trained to estimate the impact of their new designs on quality and healthcare spending. Many fellows choose a second year of fellowship to participate in pilot testing and assessment of the new care models and are exposed to curricula in implementation science.
