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

The Seminar Series is held wednesdays, 12-1 pm during the academic year, with a hiatus during the months of July and August.  The location is at Medical Education Building, Room 3207. Seminars are open to all Center members and other interested individuals. Continuing Medical Education credit is available to practicing physicians for most sessions. Students can take the course EPI 291 to earn 1 unit of course credit for each quarter of regular attendance.

Target and Audience:

Faculty, graduate students and non-faculty researchers with a focus on health policy or health services, are all welcome to present in this series.  Seminars typically focus on research-in-progress (at any stage), recently completed research, innovative research methods, policy implications of health services research, pre-proposal discussion of research ideas or plans, or "practice presentations" for abstracts accepted for regional or national meetings.  In addition, this is a great opportunity for presenting dissertations, thesis proposals, or findings.
 
We encourage presentations from health policy professionals both internal or external to the University.  To be placed on the schedule, sign up here
