Applications accepted on an ongoing basis


The PCORI Ambassador Program is a national volunteer network designed to engage healthcare stakeholders in strengthening the patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) community and increasing the dissemination of PCORI-funded​ research.

Ambassadors determine how much time they can commit to the program.


  • Provide unique perspectives and ideas that support PCORI in its pursuit of helping patients and those who care for them make better-informed healthcare decisions
  • Serve as PCORI's boots on the ground, activating communities and helping them engage in PCOR more effectively
  • Prepare their communities to receive and provide feedback on research results
  • Share PCOR best practices, enabling their communities to be more engaged in the preparation, conduct, and dissemination of research

There are no educational or training requirements required to join. Individuals of all professional and educational backgrounds who have an interest in PCOR are invited to become Ambassadors.

Ambassadors represent a variety of healthcare stakeholder groups, including:

  • Patients
  • Caregivers
  • Patient representatives
  • Researchers
  • Clinicians
  • Health systems and hospitals
  • Payers
  • Industry
  • Policy makers
  • Purchasers
  • Training institutions
