Weekly seminar series

As part of our Centre's vibrant research culture, we host a weekly seminar series. Visiting and invited researchers present current research relating to the economics of health and wellbeing, and the healthcare sector. Visitors are welcome to join these sessions where discussion and debate is encouraged.

In response to COVID-19 restrictions to travel, gathering on campus and other precautionary measures, CHE Seminars are currently being hosted online via Zoom.

Details of our 2021 program are listed below. We are continuing to add to this list as speakers are confirmed. If you would like to subscribe to our seminar email list, please sign up here. For further information on our seminar series, please contact shannon.stanwell@monash.edu.
