Co-hosted with the Arkansas Center for Research in Economics, this 3 day workshop will feature moderated round-table discussions to offer individualized feedback and advice on accepted papers. It will bring together leading senior faculty with junior faculty to collaborate and work together on improving projects and to learn about the nuances between health economics and health policy publishing. 

Papers should discuss a topic of importance within healthcare regulation, with a strong preference for papers that contribute to the discussion of scope of practice and medical licensure.

Click here to apply to attend by March 31, 2022. Submitted applications should include a rough draft of an in-progress manuscript with initial preliminary results. While the paper does not have to be in the final stage, the draft should clearly show that the author has a working knowledge of the underlying research question, literature, data sources, and study feasibility. Authors will be notified of acceptance by April 22, 2022.

IHS and ACRE are also hosting an online academic research symposium this spring featuring 3 panels on The Effect of Regulating Healthcare Workers on Patients and Practitioners. You can learn more and apply to attend here.

This program was conceptualized and created with Dr. Alicia Plemmons of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and Dr. David “Mitch” Mitchell of the University of Central Arkansas. Please reach out to with any questions.
