Education, Training & Mentoring
The Center for Implementation Research is developing a strong focus on education, training, and mentoring. The Center’s Director, Geoffrey M. Curran PhD, currently teaches a graduate-level course in implementation and implementation research entitled “Implementation Research in Clinical Practice” in the UAMS College of Public Health and is available to all UAMS students and residents. This course will serve as the foundation for additional courses/modules to be offered to students and residents in the UAMS Colleges of Pharmacy and Medicine. Students and residents interested in quality improvement and implementation will be supported by Center faculty in identifying and pursuing implementation projects. Junior faculty in the Center receive close mentoring from the Director, and Center faculty will work collaboratively, across disciplines and colleges, on developing, writing, and submitting projects for funding.
