Intensive Course on Fundamentals of Implementation Science in Global Health


Fundamentals of Implementation Science in Global Health is a one to two-week intensive course – with an intensive didactic week, and an optional second week of mentored protocol development – that provides course participants with an introduction to the emerging field of Implementation Science. The course outlines and explores 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.

Intended Audience
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.
