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.
