Future Rounds

The purpose is to foster discussion among those 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.).

The rounds will be on hiatus for the summer but we are planning the line-up of speakers for Fall 2016/Winter 2017. We welcome and encourage students to present their research! Or if you have suggestions for scholars we may approach for future sessions, please let us know. Please e-mail: hojulia@gmail.com if you are interested in presenting or have any questions.
