About Ramzi G Salloum

Dr. Salloum is an associate professor in the Department of Health Outcomes & Biomedical Informatics at the University of Florida College of Medicine and a member of the UF Health Cancer Center and the Institute for Child Health Policy. His research considers the economic implications of the implementation and dissemination of evidence-based practices, especially in cancer prevention and control.

Salloum has a demonstrated research record in the area of health services research across diverse health system and policy settings, with a particular focus on the implementation of evidence-based programs. He is well-versed in implementation science methods and frameworks and currently serves as faculty for NCI’s Training Institute for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Cancer (TIDIRC). He is the recipient of two NCI-supported fellowships from the Health Care Systems Research Network (HCSRN)’s Cancer Research Network (CRN) Scholars Program (2015-2017); and the Mentored Training for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Cancer (MT-DIRC) Program (2016-2018). Given his research experiences in studying the provision of healthcare services, his goal is to increase the implementation and dissemination of evidence-based practices by improving our understanding of stakeholder values and preferences.

Dr. Salloum teaches Fundamentals of Dissemination and Implementation Research (GMS 6851).
