Dissemination & Implementation Science Training

Institute for Implementation Science Scholars

The Institute for Implementation Science Scholars (IS-2) is a mentored training program for post-doctoral scholars interested in applying dissemination and implementation (D&I) research to proven behavioral and social science research to eliminate chronic disease disparities. This Institute is hosted by Washington University and is held in St. Louis each summer. 

Training Institute for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Cancer (TIDIRC)

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS) hosts this training institute to provide participants with a thorough grounding in conducting dissemination and implementation (D&I) research with a specific focus on cancer, across the cancer control continuum. The institute utilizes a combination of online coursework (six modules with related assignments), and a 2-day in-person training.
