Launching the New Digital Health Research Curriculum

Aug 29, 2022 | News

Our team at CIDH designed the new Digital Health Research Curriculum (DHRC) to help research investigators, study staff, and administrators leverage resources across Mass General Brigham further digital health research. DHRC aims to improve accessibility to Mass General Brigham’s plentiful resources by making it easier to understand the roles of various departments that support digital health research. Researchers will now be able to conveniently access these resources in one place.

The first course–The Universe of Digital Health Research Groups at MGH–in the three-part DHRC series premiered on July 18th. Participants will receive access to helpful tools and learn about the research process steps: starting from scoping projects to creating protocols to implementation and execution.
