Center for Methods in Implementation and Prevention Science (CMIPS)

Yale School of Public Health's new Center for Methods in Implementation and Prevention Science (CMIPS) was created to develop and disseminate innovative methodologic approaches to address these implementation gaps and directly improve health outcomes worldwide.

A mere 14 percent of biomedical research is ever translated into practice, and among these 17 years pass on average from the time a research article is submitted to eventual implementation. Cervical cancer, for example, is now uncommon in North America and Western Europe, but it remains a leading cause of cancer mortality among women in low- and middle-income countries. Similar patterns exist for HIV/AIDS and other diseases.

  • Implementation Science Group (ISG)
    ISG is a YSPH student-run organization that aims to help students with interest in public health and healthcare services to gain a foundation in Implementation Science by exposing them to high quality implementation science research, training, programming/practice, and resources. At ISG, we aim to bridge the gap between knowledge and practice in public health and healthcare.
  • Yale Center for Implementation Science (YCIS)
    The mission of the Yale Center for Implementation Science (YCIS) is to accelerate the late-stage translation of evidence-based treatments, practices, and policies to improve the health of the citizens of New Haven and beyond.
