Background about the Health Policy Rounds
The purpose is to foster discussion between like-minded individuals with an interest in health policy as an area of study – one that requires content knowledge about issues and developments in health policy and health systems, and engagement with a diverse scholarly literature in policy studies (e.g., political science, public administration, organizational behaviour, sociology, etc.).

We welcome and encourage students to present their research or projects! Or if you have suggestions for scholars we may approach for future sessions, please let us know. Please e-mail: julia.ho@mail.utoronto.ca if you are interested in presenting or have any questions.
