VA Center for Clinical Management Research 

Center informationSince the Ann Arbor VA Center for Clinical Management Research (CCMR) became an official Health Services Research and Development (HSR&D) Center in 1996, it has gone from a small group of investigators with two VA-funded projects to an elite health services research center.

Our investigators are nationally recognized experts across a broad spectrum of disciplines and hold joint University of Michigan (U-M) appointments in the Medical School and Schools of Nursing and Public Health. They have published ground-breaking research findings and play highly visible service roles in policy development, clinical leadership, and setting research agendas for the Veterans Health Administration (VHA).

To learn more about our work, have a look at our Center Brochure and read our most recent newsletters featuring our accomplishments and our impacts on policy and practice.

Develop innovative approaches for improving patient engagement in the prevention and management of chronic conditions.


CCMR’s mission is to advance knowledge, promote innovations, and engage in collaborations that will improve the health and health care of Veterans and the nation. Our vision is to improve the quality, effectiveness, safety, and efficiency of Veterans’ health care through research and partnerships that are driven by important challenges in clinical management.
