Center for Healthcare Policy and Research

Center for Healthcare Policy and Research Seminar Series

One of the fundamental aims of the Center is to enhance the intellectual environment for health services research at UC Davis and to help faculty and trainees develop the skills to conduct first-class health services research projects. As an expression of the Center's commitment to the professional growth of its faculty members, the noontime seminar series was initiated.

Convened under the leadership of Stephen Henry, MD, the Seminar Series is held weekly during the academic year, with a hiatus during the months of July and August.  The location varies. Seminars are open to all Center members and other interested individuals. Continuing Medical Education credit is available to practicing physicians for most sessions, and students can take the course EPI 291 to earn 1 unit of course credit for each quarter of regular attendance.
