Center for Health Policy / Center for Primary Care
and Outcomes Research

CHP/PCOR is the joint working name of the Center for Health Policy (CHP) and the Center for Primary Care and Outcomes Research (PCOR). We conduct rigorous research that lays the foundation for better domestic and international health policy and health care. Drawing upon our multidisciplinary research, CHP/PCOR offers innovative educational programs from the undergraduate to the graduate level.

Located in the heart of Stanford’s campus, CHP/PCOR is run under the auspices of the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (CHP) and the Stanford University School of Medicine (PCOR). The jointly operated centers were founded in 1998 to engage faculty, staff and students from across Stanford—including medicine, economics, statistics, business, law, engineering and psychology—in research on health policy and clinical practice.
