You will be asked to provide the following information during this process:
  1. Your personal details
  2. A structured project abstract (NOT EXCEEDING 2 PAGES) of an implementation science project you are working on/would like to work on in future, detailing:
    • Project title and institution/organisation
    • The implementation problem or gap that your project is seeking to address (eg. limited access to guideline recommended treatments)
    • The size of the problem or issue in your country or other similar countries (based on literature, your past research or information from experts)
    • Whether or not you have undertaken a problem analysis to identify the barriers and enablers to address your identified evidence-implementation gap. If so, what were the findings (briefly)? (eg. out of pocket costs for medicines are high)
    • Implementation strategies being considered to overcome the problem (e.g. pilot study of a low cost combination pill)
    • Research methods you did/will you use to evaluate these strategies (eg. pilot RCT, formative qualitative study)
  3. Upload a copy of your curriculum vitae (CV) - this should not exceed 2 pages
  4. Upload a 1-page letter of support from your mentor or supervisor describing your suitability for this school and how the skills you acquire will be applied after this training
  5. Upload a picture of yourself for inclusion in the meeting handbook

Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases (GACD),  Health Systems Research Institute (HSRI) and Mahidol University (MU) will hold a 5-day implementation science school in Bangkok, Thailand from 5-9 November 2019.

This 5-day training school will be facilitated by some of the field’s most prominent global experts and aims to train early- and mid-career researchers about:
  • The field of dissemination and implementation science.
  • How to study and implement research findings into policy and practice.
  • How to use of theoretical models, research designs and measurement.
  • How to collaborate and network globally.

Sixty participants from Thailand, other South East Asian countries and internationally will be selected for the training school.  Eligible participants will include early- and mid-career researchers who have:
  • Completed and/or are undertaking postgraduate coursework/research studies related to one of the health sciences or public health (or another relevant field).
  • Recently graduated PhDs in a field relevant to implementation science.
  • Other relevant graduates with up to 5 years of relevant research experience. 

(Pending exceptional circumstances, only 1 applicant per institute/centre will be accepted)

There will not be any cost for the training school, however, except for trainees from Thailand and other South Asian countries – who might be eligible for some financial support – other international trainees will be responsible for their travel and the cost of local accommodation. Full programme, lectures and course structure will be available soon.
