Implementation science has emerged as a discipline to bridge the research-to-practice gap. Implementation research is the scientific study of methods to improve the adoption, implementation, and sustainment of evidence-based practices in health services settings.

The purpose of the Implementation Science Institute is to provide participants with the tools to design and execute rigorous implementation science research. The Institute will give an introduction to the foundations of implementation science (i.e., terminology, conceptual models and frameworks, study design). Students receive an overview of advanced topics including implementation strategies and examples of successful research programs. The course directors will cover tips for grant writing, skill development and time will be spent developing ideas for Implementation Science grants. We will also describe how principles of implementation science can be applied to practical implementation efforts.
