Departmental seminars meet once per week, generally Wednesdays at 3:30 - 5:00 p.m., from the first to tenth weeks of the Fall, Winter and Spring quarters. There may be occasional seminars during the Summer quarter. Unless otherwise specified, presentations will be held in the medical center, Room W229 of the Albert Merritt Billings (AMB) building.

Topics mirror the breadth of the department: biostatistics, environmental statistics, survey methodology, epidemiology, clinical epidemiology, health services, health economics, and medical ethics and other public-health related areas. Presentations last 45 to 60 minutes, with additional time for discussion. Refreshments are provided.

The Department of Public Health Sciences occasionally cosponsors seminars with the Cancer Research Center and the MacLean Center for Clinical Medical Ethics, Department of Statistics and also with the Graduate School of Business. Joint seminars with the Cancer Center/MacLean Center or the GSB may be in a different location, as noted in the table below. Seminars sponsored jointly with the Statistics Department are often held on Monday afternoons in Eckhart Hall, as noted below.
