Research Programming and Opportunities at the Allegheny Health Network
March 3 at 10:00 am - 11:00 am
In this presentation, Keith LeJeune, PhD, Allegheny Health Network, will share research programming and opportunities within the network.
Allegheny Health Network (AHN) is a western Pennsylvania-based health system with nine hospitals, 2,400 physicians and more than 19,000 employees. With more than 120,000 annual discharges and observations, 1.32 million outpatient registrations, 280,000 emergency visits and 7,700 births, AHN serves large numbers of patients and offers a broad array of advanced medical services. The network is presently training more than 500 residents and fellows.
Despite not having a local medical school campus, AHN is actively engaged in significant clinical and translational research programs. AHN administers and executes all of its research programs through a separate and dedicated 501(c)(3) research institute. The research institute employs more than 260 employees who support research initiatives across AHN. In 2019, the AHN research institute supported nearly 8,000 research-related patient visits, while clinicians and researchers published approximately 500 peer-reviewed publications. Much of this work is done in collaboration with academic partners.
AHN and its faculty hope to build new and robust research collaborations with Penn State College of Medicine. This presentation will describe the breadth and scale of the clinical and research programs at AHN with a goal of identifying areas of mutual interest and/or synergistic capabilities upon which future collaborative programs may be built.
Refreshments will be provided.
In addition to the in-person presentation in the Academic Support Building on Penn State College of Medicine’s campus in Hershey, participants may join by calling 646-876-9923, meeting ID 665 557 180, or via Zoom webinar.
