January 2021 update

We are currently planning for a virtual or hybrid virtual/in-person SSSI Summer Training Institute and will share an announcement soon. Sign up for updates on our Contact Us page and be among the first to receive the news. 

At this 5-day Summer Training Institute, participants get a hands-on introduction to systems science methods that enhance the social impact of health and social science research. Led by experienced systems science scholars, this in-depth training institute will focus on four major systems science methods: Agent-based Modeling, Group Model Building, Social Network Analysis, and System Dynamics. Participants will review the major concepts of their chosen track/method, learn analytic best practices, and apply the methods to real-world data.

The workshops are designed for faculty, advanced graduate students, recent graduates, and professionals from public health, social work, and social sciences.

Learn more about the 4 tracks.
