Building capacity for Public Health 3.0: Introducing Implementation Science into An MPH Curriculum

Jul 27
Public health leaders are promoting a new model titled Public Health 3.0 where public health practitioners become “chief health strategists” and develop interdisciplinary skills for multisector engagement to achieve impact. This requires broad training for public health practitioners in implementation science that includes the allied fields of systems and design thinking, quality improvement, and innovative evaluation methods. UNC-Chapel Hill’s Gillings School of Global Public Health created an interdisciplinary set of courses in applied implementation science for Master of Public Health (MPH) students and public health practitioners. This article describes their rationale, conceptual approach, pedagogy, courses, and initial results to assist other schools in contemplating similar programs.
