Third Annual Medical Students Ethics Conference – Becoming a Physician: Ethical Challenges in Medical Education Call for Abstracts

October 13, 2017

The “Becoming a Physician: Ethical Challenges in Medical Education” conference is the only medical ethics conference to focus on the ethical challenges medical students encounter on the path to becoming physicians. It is intended to be a forum for medical students to present their reflections on these challenges.

The organizing committee invites abstracts for oral presentations on the ethical issues that arise in and because of one’s role as a medical student. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: the impact of race in medical practice; transgender health; immigration status and medical training; moral distress; hierarchy in medicine.



To submit an abstract the author must be enrolled in an accredited medical college. Abstracts co-authored with faculty or residents will not be considered.

a cover page with the following information: 1) abstract title; 2) author name; 3) author affiliation; and 4) email address.
