Graduates of the PhD in Translational Health Sciences synthesize, generate, and apply evidence from clinical research to everyday practice in a range of health care settings. Practice leaders address complex health problems by collaborating with a wide range of stakeholders, including consumers, policymakers, clinicians, scientists, and educators.  The PhD in Translational Health Sciences program draws on Implementation Science, which investigates the processes and strategies influencing the distribution of evidence-based health care from the clinical research stage into effective treatment options.
