If you would like to get involved in the School, why not join The Association of Population and Public Health Students (TAPPHS)? You can also check out their Facebook page for upcoming events.

As part of your time as a student at UBC, you will be part of a tight-knit community of scholars. We hope that by taking part in Grand Rounds (held once a month on Friday mornings in the Fall and Winter terms) and the MSc Research Seminar (SPPH 507, held every Friday morning in Term 1), you will stretch your capabilities as a scholar as well as receive encouragement and fellowship in a welcoming community.

You can also make the most of what the campus has to offer beyond SPPH, whether it’s the vast array of workshops and career-oriented information sessions, pot luck lunches, sports days, yoga classes, coffee socials, beaches within five minutes’ walk, a gorgeous, tree-lined campus, a sweeping view of the surrounding, snow-capped mountains, and the general laid back and friendly attitude of Vancouver.

Grand Rounds

A monthly seminar series where presenters are both faculty and guest speakers, and where each Division of the School is welcome to host a session. These are a great way to gain insight into the many disciplines at the School, and the ongoing innovative research.

MSc Research Seminar (SPPH 507)

In-depth discussions about student research and introductions to special topics, such as ethics and management of research. This is a fantastic way to take part in interdisciplinary learning, a key aspect when it comes to fostering understanding and respect.
