Training occurs in epidemiology, statistics, community trials, biobehavioral science, genetics, survey development, data collection and analysis, program management, and research administration. The goal of the CSCS is to increase the capacity of our Chinese colleagues to conduct research and develop and evaluate prevention programs independently.
In the summer of 2004, the CSCS investigators and the China CDC entered into an agreement to train national, provincial, and municipal leaders in public health for China. This educational collaboration included one-month workshops taught jointly by American faculty and China Health Ministry experts.
In partnership with the School of Community and Global Health at Claremont Graduate University, the CSCS currently offers multidisciplinary training for master and doctoral students as well as postdoctoral fellows. Students at all levels of training and from all nations are afforded numerous opportunities for involvement in ongoing research.
