Background & Purpose
The Student Working Group (SWG) is a student-run, voluntary group. The SWG was formed in 2008 with the aim of enhancing and facilitating student and postdoctoral fellow involvement in the annual CAHSPR conference and in the health services and policy research (HSPR) community at large. The SWG strives to achieve its goal through a variety of means, including the following:

  1. Promoting and coordinating educational and training activities that help students/junior researchers develop the skills and competencies needed to thrive as members of the HSPR community.
  2. Encouraging and facilitating networking opportunities and relationships between students/junior researchers and their peers and other members of the HSPR community (e.g., researchers, administrators, policymakers, funding organizations).
  3. Identifying and disseminating news and information of particular interest to students/junior researchers, including information about key issues in HSPR, as well as HSPR-related conferences, awards, and career opportunities.
  4. Maximizing student participation in and benefits derived from the annual CAHSPR conference.

In the past, SWG-led initiatives have included grant writing workshops, a speed networking event, a career panel, “Mix and Mingle” receptions, student social nights, a guidebook on scientific publishing, and much more.

Organization & Leadership

The SWG is comprised of undergraduate and graduate students, as well as postdoctoral fellows from across Canada who share an interest in HSPR.
