HPM Seminars

The Department of Health Policy and Management presents a regular speaker series each term, generally on alternating Tuesdays at noon in A622 Public Health. Diverse experts from industry and academia discuss their work, including both faculty and student health services researchers and invited external speakers. Seminars will examine methods and applications used in policy and research, will showcase Pitt and HPM’s own research, and will bring people together to discuss health policy and economics. 

All HPM faculty are invited to attend and PhD students are expected to attend. On off weeks, PhD students will meet for professional development/journal clubs to be facilitated by Lindsay Sabik and Eric Roberts.
