Breakfast with the Expert

Breakfast with the Expert is a monthly professional development program sponsored by the Department of Health Services Management and Policy, and open to all students, faculty and staff of the College of Public Health. The program is designed to offer a career development and professional networking opportunity for students, as they explore internship and job possibilities.

Created in 2010 by Tim Baylor, the program has brought to campus leading public health and health care experts who have discussed current and emerging issues in health services management and policy, with a focus on career options for our students. The program is typically held on the first Tuesday of the month during the fall and spring semesters. The program starts with an informal breakfast followed by a presentation and question and answer period.

If you have suggestions for future experts or any questions about the program, please contact the HSMP Chair at:  .  

All videos may be viewed on the Breakfast with the Expert YouTube channel.  Individual videos may be viewed by clicking the expert's name.
