Are you interested in learning how healthcare is different from other goods and services, how governments have responded to these differences, how governments make decisions about healthcare in different health systems, and how governments are dealing with current healthcare challenges in different health systems? If so, and you meet the prerequisites, you can enrol in our health systems and health policy undergraduate course (3GG3).
This course addresses the politics of health systems in comparative perspective. Students will focus on the Canadian (specifically Ontario) health system and compare and contrast the origins and evolution of this system as well as and current debates about its future, with a comparator country’s health system. A different comparator system is chosen each year.
