Graduate Certificate Program

Innovation and Implementation Science Graduate Certificate Program

The Indiana University School of Medicine offers a graduate certificate in Innovation and Implementation Science (IIS) for those passionate about improving healthcare. Through IIS coursework, you will build a foundation to improve processes of care, shape patient and clinician behaviors, and lead effective and sustainable change in your organization. Assignments will help you practice the tools of Agile Implementation such as confirming demand and implementing a termination plan, alongside business skills such as networking and pitching to stakeholders.

Current cohorts include physicians, nurses, consultants, administrators, executives, and researchers. They practice at academic medical centers, health systems, urban and rural hospitals, and in pharmaceutical, insurance, and device companies.

In 2022, we surveyed alumni from the 2016–2021 cohorts to evaluate the effectiveness of the Innovation and Implementation Science graduate program.
