Center for Health Policy Partner Programs

Creative Group Of Business People

The HSC Center for Health Policy welcomes faculty interest in faculty affiliation from across HSC and from external academic organizations. Affiliated Faculty of HSC Center for Health Policy have to be actively contributing to or collaborating on at least one of the various research, education, community, policy and other activities of the Center. Contributing External Partners are individuals who contribute or collaborate on the activities of CHP, but as faculty of an external institution.

Resources and support provided to affiliated faculty include for grant preparation and management (collaborative grants), communications and dissemination including policy briefs, early access to event and conference registrations, networking and collaboration events and opportunities as our pool of affiliated faculty grows.
