Clinical research has generated tremendous knowledge on diagnosis and treatment. However, it does not provide sufficient information to determine what treatment works best, for whom, and under which conditions.

Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) addresses these issues by identifying the most effective interventions for specific patient groups. It is a growing area of cutting-edge research that is elevated at the level of national initiative in the USA. It is “the generation and synthesis of evidence that compares the benefits and harms of alternative methods to prevent, diagnose, treat, and monitor a clinical condition or to improve the delivery of care”.

This university program is part of Université Paris Cité's Graduate School of Public Health, linking master's and doctoral courses with advanced research labs. The program in English emphasizes comparative effectiveness in research, covering clinical epidemiology, biostatistics, and research methodology. Read more >
