The Graduate Certificate in Dissemination and Implementation is a 16-credit certificate program for young investigators committed to pursuing academic careers in dissemination and implementation research. Students will gain knowledge and be able to describe crucial considerations in the design of survey samples and cluster-level interventions; relate emerging metrics distinctive to implementation research, including of implementation processes, context, adaptation, and implementation outcomes; and understand pitfalls and opportunities for the use of widely representative non-research data, such as data culled from electronic medical records and administrative databases.
On average, scholars complete the certificate requirements within one to two years. All course work must be successfully completed within five years from the start of the first course. Credits cannot be transferred into the program.
The evening course format allows for full or part-time enrollment that can accommodate clinical schedules at any point during their careers.
