Each student will undertake a health policy project that will simulate the way a physician would advocate in the public policy arena. Working with the course director or another faculty member, the student will identify a health issue, propose a solution for the issue, determine how to enact the solution and take steps to advance the solution in the public policy arena. The student will use population, epidemiological and other data to describe the issue and evidence-based information to craft the solution. In addition, the student will attend health-related legislative hearings and meetings with government officials and relevant organizations. (One student at a time).
