The IHPI Research Seminar Series is a lecture-based program designed to share innovative health services research topics, studies, and programs, with clinicians, faculty, research staff, and students from a variety of disciplines.
Dr. Virnig is a widely published author of studies examining access to health care and use and outcomes of that care. She examines how health care is influenced by patients, providers, and markets. Her research on the elderly in the Medicare program focuses on cancer surveillance and care, Medicare managed care, and end-of-life care. Dr. Virnig is also the director of the Research Data Assistance Center (ResDAC), which is funded by a contract from CMS to provide free assistance to academic, government, and nonprofit researchers interested in using Medicare or Medicaid data for their research. As Senior Associate Dean, she focuses on faculty development, research development, and strategic planning; and works closely with school leadership to ensure that activities are mission-focused and aimed at building a healthier future.
