Course description

The implementation research program at Linköping University offers this highly acclaimed annual course at postgraduate level, open also for post-doc researchers. The course is given yearly since 2011. Teachers in the course are both from Linköping University and other universities. The course has garnered highly favourable course assessments and attracts PhD students from across Sweden as well as participants from the neighbouring Nordic countries.

This PhD-level course provides a broad introduction to the development of implementation science and the research conducted in this field. The aim is to increase understanding of the challenges of implementation in healthcare and convey in-depth knowledge concerning theories, models and frameworks that are of practical use in the participants’ own implementation studies.

The course is taught in English. Work is conducted on half-time basis and course participants meet in Linköping on three occasions for lectures and group discussions. Course materials are studied in between these meetings. 

More information about the learning outcomes and formalities of the course can be found in the syllabus. A few weeks before the course begins the shared online space in LISAM will be updated with information regarding lectures, seminars, course activities, and reading material.
