Departmental seminars meet once per week, generally Wednesdays at 3:30 - 5:00 p.m., from the first to tenth weeks of the Fall, Winter and Spring quarters. There may be occasional seminars during the Summer quarter. Unless otherwise specified, presentations will be held in the Medical Center, Room W229 of the Albert Merritt Billings (AMB) building.
Topics mirror the breadth of the department: biostatistics, environmental statistics, survey methodology, epidemiology, clinical epidemiology, health services, health economics, and medical ethics and other public-health related areas. Presentations last 45 to 60 minutes, with additional time for discussion.
