Fundamentals of Implementation Science in Global Health
Application due date: May 15, 2018 Date(s): August 27-31 & September 4-7, 2018 Location: Seattle, WA
The Department of Global Health at the University of Washington is hosting the one- to two-week short course Fundamentals of Implementation Science in Global Health. The training comprises an intensive didactic week (August 27-31), with an optional second week of mentored protocol development (September 4-7). The course is designed to provide an introduction of implementation science, and to outline and explore an inter-disciplinary framework of methods (including applied engineering, management tools, health systems, and policy research) applied to improving implementation and scale-up of health programs, paired with experiential case studies from global health leaders.
This course will be of interest to researchers, policy makers, funders, and practitioners working in low- and middle-income settings who are interested in an intensive introduction to Implementation Science. For a subset of participants who are involved in the design and conduct of implementation research, a second week is offered to provide intensive mentorship for the development of the core components of an implementation research protocol.
The deadline to apply is May 15, 2018.
