Continuity Research Network


CORNET is a national, practice-based research network composed of pediatric residency continuity practices.


The CORNET mission is to advance children’s health by partnering with key stakeholders through rigorous research in primary care, health care delivery, improvement science, and medical education, through an established, self-sustaining, collaborative, research network among pediatric continuity clinicians. Findings will be disseminated in order to improve the health care of underserved populations and the training of future pediatricians.

Research Goals

CORNET's research is focused on the pediatric continuity practice setting. The research goals are:

  1. To study health and healthcare issues of minority and underserved children.
  2. To compare health care issues of minority and underserved populations to those of other populations, especially examining healthcare disparities.
  3. To study resident education, a) compare practice behavior between residents in their continuity practices and pediatricians in their practice settings and b) increase resident exposure to and involvement in primary care research.
