Call for abstracts

Authors are invited to submit abstracts for consideration as part of the 2020 ICPH. A Vision for Humanity in Medicine is this year’s conference theme.

The 2020 International Conference on Physician Health™ (ICPH) will provide a forum for practitioners and researchers to present innovative methods and support systems, educational programs and recent research findings in the area of physician health. Doctors are people too, and this conference will focus on practice steps to make medicine a more sustainable career choice. By offering practical evidence-based solutions, practice skills, suggestions and tools for attendees to take back to their workplace and make change happen, ICPH will promote an overall healthier culture for physicians.

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.

Be sure to visit the “Call for Abstracts” on the British Medical Association website to review important details and instructions for submitting abstracts. Submissions will be accepted through the online ICPH Abstract Submission System, accessed at https://events.bma.org.uk/icph-2020/submit-abstract

Abstracts can be submitted from Oct. 1, 2019 to Jan. 31, 2020.

Submit your abstracts online via the Abstract Submission System or learn more (PDF).

Presentation formats

Submissions should be in the form of one of the following formats. Handouts to support each format are highly encouraged.

  • Poster presentations: Written or visual poster presentations of research, recent findings, innovative methods and support systems. Posters will be displayed throughout the conference and presenters will have a dedicated time to be available for questions and discussion with interested parties in an informal setting.
  • Oral presentations: Short oral presentations which will be grouped into related sessions. Each presentation will be scheduled for 15 minutes with an additional 5 minutes for questions and answers to the presenting author/s. Each group of presentations will be followed by a 10-minute panel question and answer session.
  • Interactive workshop sessions: Workshops are required to be interactive sessions designed to improve skills and knowledge in a specific area of physicians’ health and wellbeing. Presentations followed by Q&A are not a suitable workshop format. Subject matter is open (but should be related to the conference theme) and sessions should be designed to address specific, topical issues. Workshops may range from 60 – 90 minutes, and handouts are encouraged. These sessions may also offer you an opportunity to further your research: our varied audience of professionals interested in all aspects of doctors’ health may provide you with the focus group or feedback you need.
