Doctoral seminar in health policy (HTH POL 711)
This seminar is dedicated to the advanced study of health policy topics, theoretical frameworks, and methodological approaches. It provides an opportunity for doctoral students with diverse analytical, disciplinary and experiential perspectives to focus on issues that characterize the breadth of health policy. It also provides an opportunity to begin preparations for comprehensive exams.
The seminar will highlight both the landmarks and frontiers of the field and foster interdisciplinary communication and integration. In addition to the substantive focus, attention is also given to the professional socialization of the doctoral student in preparation for a career in academic scholarship, applied research, consulting or health-system leadership.
The course is taught by Mike Wilson, the Forum’s Assistant Director, in the fall semester, and by John Lavis, the Forum’s Director, in the winter semester.
