Overview of Services

The Qualitative Research Consulting Service is part of the Center for Healthy Communities and Research (CHCR) within the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin and provides comprehensive consulting in qualitative research methodologies to MCW faculty, staff, and trainees. Our center is made up of qualitative methods experts focusing on community-engaged research, with extensive grant preparation on projects funded by NIH, NEH, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Advancing Healthier Wisconsin, CTSI, HRSA, and VA.

Our consulting services include assistance with qualitative research design, institutional review board (IRB), grant preparation, study team meetings, data collection, data analysis, manuscript consultation, and community-based dissemination. Our services are provided through hourly consultations and faculty FTE on funded projects.

After the initial consultation, a time estimate and cost are provided. Please contact Kairee Larson (kllarson@mcw.edu) to schedule an initial consultation.
