About the Forum

Overview

Under the leadership of Dean Minor, Stanford School of Medicine is committed not only to providing outstanding health care, but also to improving the public policy environment in which the health care system resides.

The Stanford Health Policy Forum is an ongoing series of discussions and presentations designed to inform public debate about major health policy issues. Events in the Forum draw on the wealth of expertise available within Stanford University and the broader Bay Area, as well as in the national and international health policy field.

Frequency & Location

The Stanford Health Policy Forum will be held 2-3 times per academic year. Please be sure to check the website in advance to confirm the time and location. All events are free and open to the public.

Forum Format

The specific format of events varies, comprising panels, debates and interviews of major figures in the health policy world. The one common element is that all events feature significant time for the audience to ask questions of and interact with the speakers. We ask all invited guests to strive for an informal atmosphere that promotes dialogue rather than the giving of formal, extended lectures.

The Dean's Message

Welcome to the Stanford Health Policy Forum! I am very happy that we have a venue for Stanford and the broader community to discuss the pressing health care policy issues of the day. Please join the conversation.
