Students aspiring to be health-system leaders or wanting to be informed citizens can learn from Forum experts about the process of making and influencing decisions at different levels, within and across health systems.
If you are an undergraduate student, you can enroll in:
- our simulations course, which offers students the chance to participate in simulated hospital board meetings, cabinet meetings and World Health Assembly meetings; and/or
- one of our global health courses, which offer students the opportunity to consider critical factors and catalysts that influence global health decision-making processes and governance.
If you are a graduate student interested in health policy and health systems, and you meet the prerequisites, you can enrol in our doctoral seminar, which will provide you with an opportunity to network with other doctoral students from diverse analytical, disciplinary and experiential backgrounds to focus on issues that characterize the breadth of health policy.
We also supervise students and, in many other ways, contribute to the Health Policy PhD program. We are beginning to explore the possibility of adopting a co-supervision model for Indigenous students seeking to combine what we can offer with what leading Indigenous faculty members can offer. Contact us at email@example.com to find out more.
Through these courses, the Forum is helping to shape the future of health-system leadership, and providing innovative learning opportunities for senior-level students who have a particular interest in how health systems function at local, provincial, national and international levels.
Other student opportunities that we offer include our McMaster Health Forum Fellow
program and our Queen Elizabeth Scholarships in Strengthening Health Systems
. Learn more about these opportunities and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
