Welcome for students
The Forum works by involving concerned citizens and influential thinkers and doers. Part of our mandate is to nurture the leaders of tomorrow by exposing them to the leaders and challenges of today. We seek to involve students in all our activities.
We offer several ways for students to experience the Forum.
- Our Student-led Dialogues and Debates focus on highly topical health challenges that concern students and the general public. These dialogues and debates are organized by our Student Subcommittee, and open to the public. Held on campus, we encourage students to attend and participate actively.
- Our Simulations courses offer students the chance to participate in simulated hospital board meetings, cabinet meetings, and World Health Organization (WHO) Executive Board meetings, and interact with decision makers.
- Our Global health courses offer senior-level students the opportunity to consider critical factors and catalysts that influence global health decision-making processes and governance.
- Our Fellows Program allows McMaster students to study evidence synthesis, deliberations and public engagement. Fellows are exposed to influential doers and thinkers at Forum events, and through internships at government ministries and international agencies such as the World Health Organization.
- The MacHealthForumFellowFiles student blog gives students involved in Forum activities the opportunity to write about their unique experiences and knowledge, and serves as an online medium to share those insights and knowledge with other students within the McMaster community and beyond.
The call for applications for Forum Fellows for the 2012-13 academic year is now closed.
