Call for Abstracts

Authors are invited to submit abstracts for consideration as part of the 2018 ICPH. Driving Meaningful Change: Make It Happen, Make It Matter is this year’s conference theme.

The conference will showcase research and innovations related to physicians’ health. It will provide a forum for practitioners and researchers to present recent findings, innovative methods, support systems and educational programs.

Of particular interest are submissions that focus on designing, implementing and leading meaningful and sustainable change within increasingly complex health systems to promote physician health and wellness—from medical school through to retirement. Relevant submissions dealing with any aspect of physicians’ health and wellness are also welcome.

The goal is to promote an overall healthier culture for physicians by offering practical evidence-based strategies for attendees to implement within their practices.

Submitting an abstract can offer an opportunity for you to further your work. Our audience of varied professionals interested in all aspects of physician’s health can act as an expert focus group and provide professional assessment of your submission.

Abstracts can be submitted from Feb. 1 to March 31, 2018.

Submit your abstracts online via the Abstract Submission Form.
