Summer Institute 2021

New Questions? New Research Skills. New Answers.

The virtual Summer Institute is now offering ten workshops, taught by expert Duke Faculty, that will support your research goals. You’ll strengthen your foundational knowledge in population health sciences and learn new research methods to help see questions from new perspectives. This year we’re offering two topical introductory courses in Population Health Sciences and Patient-Reported Outcomes (PROs) that touch on research methods. The remaining eight offer a variety of research methods in a more specific context.  

Are you looking to:

  • Get a big picture understanding of population health sciences?
  • Understand the development process and apply qualitative methods in PRO measures?
  • Develop, evaluate, and implement healthcare delivery interventions?
  • Design core mixed method study designs?
  • Explain approaches to qualitative inquiry and how to select the best design and method to answer new research questions?
  • Apply concepts related to coding and identify themes in qualitative data?
  • Determine the role of stakeholders in population health science?
  • Conceptualize how to create a stated-preference survey?

Duke University population health researchers will teach these skills and more at this year’s Department of Population Health Sciences Summer Institute.


Why Attend the Summer Institute?

The Summer Institute will introduce you to new research methods that:

  • You can apply on the job

  • Will expand your areas of expertise

  • Can help further your career

Who Should Attend?

Students, trainees, and early- to mid-career researchers and professionals who work in health care and health services research and want to learn new topics in population health and new research methods.
