Institute for Health and Social Policy
Welcome to the Institute for Health and Social Policy!
The Institute was founded as part of McGill’s cross-faculty Health and Society initiative and speaks not only to McGill’s longstanding commitment to excellence in research issues at the intersection of Medicine and the Arts, but also the University’s pre-eminent position in public policy. In particular the IHSP aims to translate research findings in the area of social inequalities and health outcome into concrete provincial, national and international policies. Through the generosity of donors, the Institute also administers two programs: the McBurney Latin America Program, which focuses on training in Latin America; and the Healthier Societies Initiative, which examines OECD best practices in health policy and services. We invite you to read more about the Institute’s activities and opportunities for student internships both at McGill and abroad.
