Events, Seminars and Speaker Series
Rotman is just blocks from Canada's leading medical research hub, and the School takes advantage of its strategic location by hosting speaking and networking events with top thought leaders in the field.
Launched in 2004, the Centre for Health Sector Strategy is a strategic area of focused research for the Rotman School. Under the direction of Professor Brian R. Golden and a board of advisors from industry, government and academia, the Centre drives a research agenda that is aimed at producing actionable management knowledge for the health sector and the life sciences. Among other issues, collaborating researchers of the centre conduct research on:
- Commercialization of life-sciences products and services
- The role of the private sector in healthcare delivery and technology
- Alliances (public-public, private-private and public-private)
- Performance management, governance and control
- Organizational redesign and system integration
- Sustainability of public funding in Canadian healthcare
The industry domain of the centre includes pharmaceutical and biotechnology, medical technology, medical informatics, hospitals and long-term care, and insurance. A central focus is original research, intended to inform the management and organization of the health sector. A corollary of this focus is the support of knowledge transfer and uptake, through education as well as scholarly and managerial publications.
The Centre acts as a catalyst to exploit the concentration of academic and health sector talent in the private sector, at U of T (in medicine, law, economics, and bioethics among others) and the Rotman School. Initiatives include an MBA major in Health Sector Management, Executive Programs for health-care professionals, and events and speaker series.
