The Research Department is a relatively new addition to the medical work of UOSSM in the region
In collaboration with some professors at Yale University and collaboration with other strategic partners, UOSSM continues to collect necessary data and conduct various medical research to closely monitor and assess the ongoing and changing needs of people inside Syria.
Research results provides UOSSM, and other relief organizations working in the region, with a source of info based on fact-driven needs assessments of the medical work inside Syria.
Ongoing research is a key component to properly address and meet current needs and to continuously improve the quality of care and services provided.
In October 2015, UOSSM in collaboration with Physicians Across Continents (PAC) revealed the first comprehensive hospital survey of its kind inside Syria, since the start of the crisis.
