    Collapse overview
    Dr. Prochaska is a hospitalist clinician and health outcomes researcher, and is currently supported by a grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) to study how red blood cell transfusion for hospitalized patients with anemia affects their fatigue, activity, and fatigability levels after they have been discharged from the hospital. Dr. Prochaska is also the Associate Director of the University of Chicago Hospitalist Project research infrastructure, and involved in the integration of the Chicago Area Patient Centered Outcomes Research Network (CAPriCORN) into clinical research at the University of Chicago. He is Director of the University of Chicago Translational Medicine Program (CTMP), and a Co-Director of the Cultivating Health & Aging Researchers by Integrating Science, Medicine, & Aging (CHARISMA) Program, both of which train undergraduate students in clinical and translational research. Dr. Prochaska is also an Assistant Director of the MacLean center for Clinical and Medical Ethics at the University of Chicago.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
