Postgraduate Training Scholarships in Implementation Science for 2019 Academic Year

Application deadline: 31 July 2018

 

 

BACKGROUND

The University of the Witwatersrand’s School of Public Health, in conjunction with the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR), hosted at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland, invites suitably qualified candidates to apply for a full scholarship supported by TDR to undertake the full-time Master Degree Programme in the field of Implementation Science.

The degree programme is open to candidates from a range of disciplines including clinical and other health-related fields; statistics and other quantitative fields, as well as demography and social sciences. The degree programme should also appeal to candidates who want to become more involved in research in health-related fields.

The University of the Witwatersrand is one of seven universities around the world participating in the TDR Postgraduate Training Scheme, which aims to strengthen capacity in implementation research.

Implementation research1 is a growing field that supports the identification of health system bottlenecks and approaches to address them, and is particularly useful in low- and middle-income countries where many health interventions do not reach those who need them. The goal of strengthening capacity in implementation research on infectious diseases of poverty (in particular, the neglected tropical diseases2, malaria and tuberculosis) and boosting the number of researchers and practitioners in low and middle-income countries is in line with the TDR focus on improving the health and well-being of people burdened by infectious diseases of poverty through research and innovation.

 

DEGREE PROGRAMME ON OFFER

  • MSc Epidemiology in the field of Implementation Science (18 months full-time)
