Monthly Seminar

CHIPS holds a monthly, interdisciplinary seminar. Each month we feature a different speaker that equips attendees with discrete, tangible skills and/or immediately actionable information to further their career development in health policy and health systems science. These seminars also offer the opportunity to network with each other with the aim of developing new collaborations that innovate interdisciplinary grant and project ideas.
