Training in Dissemination and Implementation Research


Recently, the NIH sent out a call for applications to attend the second annual Training Institute in Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health. This is a week-long intensive training in dissemination and implementation (D&I) science taught by leading experts in the field. As an alumnus of the first annual TIDIRH in 2011, I would highly recommend this institute experience for any new scientist working in D&I. The expert faculty have been at the front lines of D&I research for many years, and the institute venue provides for both didactic and personal training from these experts. During the 5 days of the institute, you will have access to the faculty breakfast, lunch, and dinner in small conversational groups during the meals. During last year's institute, the faculty were flexible and modified the didactic portion on the fly to accommodate our needs and wishes for the training experience.

This year's training will be held in San Jose, California in early July. Having been to California infrequently, I cannot hazard a guess as to the weather at that time of year, however, you will probably willingly stay indoors to take advantage of all the institute has to offer. At the end of the institute, you will be sent home with an arsenal of tools and information to help you not only further your own career in D&I but to spread the word to others as well.

Good luck and best wishes!
