The program itself begins at 8.45 a.m. and concludes at 5 p.m. In addition to prominent keynote and panel speakers, an exciting central part of CHEPA's annual multidisciplinary conference for graduate students is hearing an array of selected graduate students from area universities presenting their own innovative health policy research for discussion and critique in a supportive environment. 

Examples of relevant research areas include:

  • Access to/quality of health care
  • Determinants of health
  • Disparities in access/health status
  • Economics of health care and HTA
  • Global health
  • Health funding
  • Health politics
  • Health reform
  • Health workforce
  • Knowledge translation
  • Public health or prevention
  • Research methods

The audience for this annual event is geared to graduate students and post-doctoral students from a variety of health disciplines and programs including political science, economics, sociology, health research methodology, health professions and health management, as well as policy makers.

We recommend that papers presented at the conference also be submitted for consideration and possible publication in the
Health Reform Observer – Observatoire des Réformes de Santé, an open access, peer-reviewed online journal presenting the best evidence available on reforms related to the governance, financing and delivery of health care in the Canadian provinces and territories.
