About the Summer Institute


No prior experience or legal training is required. The 2023 Summer Institute is for people interested in learning more about the intersections of law and health human resources and healthcare systems. Students come from diverse professional backgrounds.


The program runs full-time over five days on Zoom. It encompasses 20 hours of live lectures and workshops and 10 hours of group discussion. Throughout you’ll be taught and interact with a wide range of leading experts in the area, as well as have opportunities to network with fellow students. Generally we require all students to attend the sessions in real time as well as participate in discussions (see FAQ on the Center webpage). Sessions videos will also be made available to you as the Institute progresses.


The tuition fee for the Institute is $1,600 (CAD). Tax may be added depending on your location. This is payable upon acceptance of an offer of admission. Bursary support may be available.


Students completing the course will receive a certificate from the University of Ottawa Centre for Health Law, Policy and Ethics.
