Lahey Institute of Healthcare Delivery Science | Burlington, Massachusetts

The UMass Chan-Lahey Regional Campus Medical School seeks an innovative and strategic individual to serve as the inaugural Director of the Lahey Institute for Healthcare Delivery Science and Associate Dean for Research.

In 2022, Lahey Hospital & Medical Center (Lahey) and UMass Chan Medical School (UMass Chan) entered into an affiliation agreement to create a regional campus of UMass Chan with an emphasis on leadership, health systems science, and interprofessional education. Known as UMass Chan-Lahey, it features a special medical education curriculum, LEAD@Lahey, which spans all four years of medical school. After a joint strategic planning process, Lahey and UMass Chan executed a follow-on research agreement in March 2024 focused on establishing a transformative and collaborative partnership that combines the strengths of their healthcare institutions and academic centers to advance population health, digital medicine, and health systems science through a Learning Health System approach. By integrating research, education, clinical practice, and community engagement to benefit the health of the region, UMass Chan-Lahey aim to foster innovation, equitably improve patient outcomes, and contribute to the broader understanding of healthcare delivery and interventions.

To pursue these goals, UMass Chan-Lahey has committed to establishing the Lahey Institute for Healthcare Delivery Science (the Institute). The Institute will advance research and innovation in healthcare delivery across the entire continuum of care, leveraging the power of a team science approach and promoting a culture of continuous discovery and improvement. The Institute will be led by a Director, who will also serve as Associate Dean for Research for the UMass Chan Lahey Regional Campus Medical School.

The successful candidate will have an established record of excellence in research in health outcomes, care delivery models, and/or population health, as well as education, mentorship, and academic administration. As the senior research leader, they are expected to have a strong record of NIH, AHRQ, PCORI, or other similar funding, an active research program, and demonstrated achievements in one or more of health services research, comparative effectiveness, pragmatic clinical trials, implementation science, or other related fields of healthcare delivery science.
