Interested in doing research on how much is spent on healthcare? This workshop introduces you to the Medicare Geographic Variation Public Use File and shows you ways it can be used to explore policy questions related to healthcare costs!  Dinner will be provided!  To register for this workshop, please click here.  

This workshop is the second in a series of four health policy research workshops hosted by the Schroeder Center for Health Policy and available to undergraduate and graduate students throughout the spring of 2019. The first three workshops introduce students to different publicly available datasets that can be used in their own health policy research projects, such as econometrics papers, independent studies, and possibly Honors research. In these workshops, students will learn where to access the data, how the dataset is structured, and what types of research can be conducted with the data. Students will have the opportunity to work with the data in the session. The final workshop focuses on how students can disseminate their research through either publication in peer-reviewed journals or presentation at conferences around the country. 

To find out more about the remaining two health policy research workshops, please go to Schroeder Center's webpage.
