Are you a PhD student interested in an advanced study of health policy topics, theoretical frameworks, and methodological approaches? If so, and you meet the prerequisites, you can enrol in our doctoral seminar in health policy (HTH POL 711).
Through this course, you will work with doctoral students from diverse analytical, disciplinary and experiential backgrounds to focus on issues that characterize the breadth of health policy. It also provides an opportunity to begin preparations for comprehensive exams.
The seminar highlights both the landmarks and frontiers of the field, and fosters interdisciplinary communication and integration. In addition to the substantive focus, attention is also given to preparation for a career in academic scholarship, applied research, consulting or health-system leadership.
The course is partially taught by Mike Wilson, the Forum’s assistant director, in the fall term, and by John Lavis, the Forum’s director, in the winter term.
