Seminar Series and Journal Club
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 Paul Leigh, Ph.D., 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.
A mailing list is available for those wishing to stay informed about upcoming seminar events. To be added to the list, please contact:
The Health Services Research Journal Club is an educational offering targeting junior faculty. This seminar, jointly organized by the Center and the Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC), as part of their Mentored Clinical Research Training Program (MCRTP), uses guided discussion of recent articles in the health services research literature to illustrate important methodological or policy principles. The Journal Club is led by Peter Franks, M.D., and Patrick Romano, M.D., M.P.H.
