DISC offers a graduate course annually in the Spring on D&I science co-taught by three members of the Executive Leadership Team,
Dissemination and Implementation Science in Health: An Introduction (FPM 291). This course focuses on disseminating and scaling up health interventions in real-world settings. Interactive didactic sessions and guest lectures on implementation of research principles, approaches, and methods. Will design a proposal to implement or scale-up a clinical or public health intervention.Borsika Rabin is currently teaching Dissemination and Implementation, Policy, and Health Services in Mental Health (FMPH 428). This course will use Dissemination and Implementation Science to address the gap between promising research results for mental health and their successful translation into improved individual, community, and population health.
DISC currently offers undergraduate internships for course credit through the UC San Diego Family Medicine and Public Health Department (Course Number: FMPH199 and FMPH198). E-mail DISC Manager, Clare Viglione, for application instructions at
