UNC MHCH Course: Implementation Science in Global Health

This graduate level course is an introduction to implementation science with an emphasis on its application for global health. The course will first highlight current challenges in global health and the role of implementation science in addressing them, including the development of practice-based research activities and the provision of technical support for program implementation. The course then will define current implementation research frameworks and active implementation frameworks and describe the interface between improvement science and implementation science. Students will have the opportunity to work in groups and independently.
