Research in Progress Seminars

Online seminars

Thursdays from 12:00 - 1:00 pm

The Department of Healthcare Delivery and Population Sciences' biweekly research-in-progress seminar is a venue where trainees, local and visiting faculty, health system leaders, and representatives of community-based organizations and industry have the opportunity to present ongoing and planned research projects.

These seminars generally consist of presenting to 15-30 people representing DHDPS faculty and staff, clinical faculty, trainees, and health system leaders, and are informal, lively, and fun. You may also be interested in scheduling a Research Help Session.

  • We provide constructive feedback for projects at all stages of development, from study conception to analysis to presentation of results for conferences or manuscripts.
  • Feedback is given with the aims of teaching and learning about study design and analysis, improving the project being discussed, and giving presenters an opportunity to find collaborators within and beyond DHDPS.
