The overarching goal of the ISPH is to conduct large-scale research studies on population health and intervention implementation in real world settings (i.e., outside the research environment). We engage in, foster, and leverage multidisciplinary research collaborations across different health outcomes and disease types with public sector health agencies, health care organizations, clinical researchers, community-based organizations and policy makers.
Our primary goals are:
- To apply rigorous scientific methods to assess the effectiveness and impact of interventions, strategies, initiatives, and policies aimed at improving population health around the world.
- To conduct research that describes population health outcomes and improves the understanding of the factors that can shape/influence them through better implementation.
- To create, support, and leverage successful multi-disciplinary partnerships across all of CUNY’s colleges, professional schools, and institutes for cutting edge and impactful research collaborations at the intersection of implementation science and population health.
- To provide hands-on research training for masters/doctoral students and post-doctoral fellows and host visiting scholars at the intersection of implementation science and population health
