Interdisciplinary Programming

The Center is an active partner in interdisciplinary health programing across campus‎:

Colloquium in Healthcare Leadership

Through the Colloquium in Healthcare Leadership, the Yale School of Management and Yale School of Medicine hold candid discussions with prominent leaders from public, private, and nonprofit healthcare organizations on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. in the Beaumont Room at the Sterling Hall of Medicine (2nd Floor), 333 Cedar Street. Faculty and students from across the university are encouraged to attend.


ISPS Health Policy Seminars

The ISPS (Institution for Social and Policy Studies) Center for Health Policy holds monthly seminars in health policy. The seminars are interdisciplinary, drawing speakers from law, economics, medicine, and the policy world. The seminars generally take place on Wednesdays from 12:15 – 1:30 pm at ISPS (77 Prospect Street) in Room A001. Faculty and students from across the university are encouraged to attend. 


Yale School of Medicine Program for Biomedical Ethics Evening Seminar Series

The Yale Program for Biomedical Ethics holds an evening ethics seminar series throughout the year. Faculty and students from across the university are encouraged to attend.

Events and conferences at the cutting edge of health law and policy are held throughout the academic year, driven in part by the passions of interested students. Recent events have included both large addresses by and intimate conversations with current and former government officials, including FDA Commissioner Peggy Hamburg, former HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, and Senator Richard Blumenthal; academic debates over health law cases pending in the U.S. Supreme Court; major conferences focused on the changing business of health care and the 50th anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid; and panels focused on topics ranging from gun policy to abortion, medical ethics and social justice. The Center also hosts numerous career and networking events throughout the year.
