WIDTH Forum

What is WIDTH?

WIDTH (Workshop for Integrating and Discussing Topics in Healthcare) is an interdisciplinary forum for doctoral students to discuss their dissertation topics, research ideas, and results with other students, faculty, and staff that have a similar interest in health services research but belong to different cognate training and perspectives. WIDTH participants will gain insight into other cognates' research methods and potentially stimulate ideas about how to integrate similar techniques to their own research.

Unless otherwise noted, all meetings take place in the North Conference Room, M3024 (SPH 2) and via Zoom.
