UCSF Implementation Science Online Training Program

Jun 12,2018 | Consortium_staff Training Opportunities

Registration opens:  June 15, 2018
Dates:  Fall (September-December), Winter (January-March), Spring (April-June)

The UCSF Implementation Science Online Training Program is a part-time program consisting of a series of six online courses focused on theories and methods relevant to the design of strategies to facilitate uptake of health-related interventions. Scholars can choose to take individual courses instead of completing all six courses required for the Certificate. The program is designed for people from a broad range of professional settings who are currently engaged in the development, implementation, and evaluation of strategies to promote and improve health and health care quality, including clinical and public health researchers, quality improvement officers, community-based clinic staff, public health and public policy practitioners, and clinicians. The program welcomes trainees who work in clinical and public health settings outside the U.S.


Upon completion of the program, scholars will be able to:

  • Identify appropriate health interventions to translate into practice.
  • Design effective and sustainable implementation strategies.
  • Design comprehensive evaluations of intervention implementation strategies.
  • Develop fundable implementation science grant proposals.


This program is ideal for scholars who are actively involved in implementing a health intervention or quality improvement program. Although not required, prior training in qualitative and/or quantitative research methods will enable scholars to best take advantage of the curriculum.
