Welcome to the 2023 Qualitative Methods Workshop hosted by the the National Institutes for Health (NIH) Fogarty Center's Global Health Program for Fellows and Scholars. This is the fifth year that this workshop has been offered- and the first time were will be meeting in person since 2019. The number of attendees has significantly increased each year, reflecting the growing interest in qualitative methods research training. Our goal is for you all to walk away understanding the basics of study implementation and data analysis in qualitative research. As this is an introductory level study implementation and data analysis workshop, attendees should view this as an opportunity to orient themselves to the vast body of knowledge in these areas and identify their next steps for training.
This workshop is designed for those seeking an introduction to the practical dimensions of qualitative research study design and individual interview or focus group data analysis. Attendees should be planning to engage in some form of qualitative research as part of their fellowship project.
The workshop session will begin promptly at 9:00am on Saturday July 8th with the assumption that everyone is prepared to participate. We encourage you to arrive 10 minutes early.
