LHS Seminar Series

Note: The LHS Seminar Series is only available to WCH staff and physicians.

Women’s College Hospital is on the journey to becoming a Learning Health System (LHS) – fostering a culture of curiosity and engagement where everyone is continuously asking thoughtful questions about current processes, delivery, and outcomes, to determine if and where we’re adding value and how we can work together to enact improvements.

As part of this commitment, WCH Academics holds a virtual LHS Seminar Series where speakers are invited each month to share their experiences with an LHS, what resources are required, the value-added, and how it might impact the way in which they conduct their work.
