Course description

The implementation research program at Linköping University offers this highly acclaimed course at postgraduate level, open also for post-doc researchers. The course has been given yearly since 2011. Teachers in the course are from Linköping University and other universities. The course has gained highly favourable course assessments and attracts PhD students from across Sweden and around the world.

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 research.

The course is taught in English and work is conducted on half-time basis. The course is available on-line or on-site at Linköping University. For those students who choose on-site learning, there are scheduled lectures and group discussions at two occasions at the university. Students who choose on-line learning will be able to access the course during these same dates. Course materials are studied in between meetings. 

More information about the learning outcomes and formalities of the course can be found in the syllabus.
