eCourse in Effective Grant writing in Public health is a three-month eLearning program designed to develop expertise in intricacies of grant writing in the field of public health.The course has been developed by Indian Institute of Public Health Gandhinagar (IIPHG). It will be delivered by a multidisciplinary team from IIPHG and experts in the field.
A large pool of human resource exists in the form of researchers, public health specialists, scientists, clinicians in medical colleges/teaching hospitals and academicians, to carry out quality research. However, it is well known that research in India is limited both in terms of quantity and quality. There is enough evidence to support the urgent need to offer training in research methodology and help support the development of research methodology curricula on regional and national levels to advance the state of research in medical education and allied sciences. To harness the potential of the existing pool, capacity building in research methodology is imperative and should be a recognised priority. The eCourse in Clinical Research Methods is intended to support professional development through an eLearning mode. The course will provide greater flexibility to those with constraints in terms of time, distance, or other reasons. Further, self-paced learning using adult learning technique spread over a duration of four months will be less intensive and more realistic for achieving educational goals.COURSE FEE For Indian nationals and South Asian candidates: The course fee per participant is INR 6000 for course participation (inclusive of complementary reading material) and additional INR 3000 for the final assessment/ examination and award of certificate.
