National Conference for Physician-Scholars in the Social Sciences and Humanities
April 6-7th, 2019
University of Michigan Medical School, Ann Arbor, MI
This conference is a biennial meeting for those committed to exploring how the fields of anthropology, economics, epidemiology, ethics, health policy, history, sociology, and literature can advance the practice and public understanding of medicine. Every two years, this conference provides an opportunity to revisit and reinvigorate this mission by creating a venue for graduates, trainees, and prospective students of MD-PhD training programs to build a community and present their research.
Presentations may take the form of a 10-minute “mini-talk,”15-minute research talk, or poster. Submissions on all topics and from individuals at all career stages (MD, PhD, or MD/PhD) are encouraged. We welcome work from early-phase trainees working on new research projects, dissertation-phase students, and faculty and physicians.

We ask that you limit your abstract submission to 350 words and include the primary research question, methodological orientation, points of engagement with existing scholarship, and general conclusions.

Abstract submission will open in mid-October 2018. Stay tuned!
