ICPH 2021: A vision for humanity in medicine

This important conference, supported by the British, American and Canadian Medical Associations, aims to support doctors and medical students to create better working environments for themselves and their colleagues. This time, our conference will be an entirely online event, with an exciting schedule of presentations and interactive sessions to enable physicians across the globe to learn, connect and develop strategies and networks to support them.

By presenting positive interventions and bringing together a vibrant, international community of professionals, we aim to enable you to make your career and workplace more conducive to sustaining your health and wellbeing. The conference will give you the tools to put ideas into practice.

A healthier workforce delivers better outcomes for patients and this conference will offer strategies to enable you to make positive change for the benefit of your patients, your team and yourself. The conference will include inspirational keynote presentations, themed presentation streams, interactive networking sessions and opportunities to connect with colleagues.


Call for abstracts: COVID-19 update

In addition to abstracts that have already been accepted, we are launching a new and limited call for abstracts for short oral presentations (15 minutes) or posters with a focus on the following areas:

  • effects of pandemic on physical and mental health of individual physicians and their teams
  • innovations in physician health service development and provision in response to the pandemic
  • reviewers will also consider relevance of the submission to the overall conference theme: a vision for humanity in medicine.

We are unable to consider any additional work without a strong COVID-19 focus. 


The deadline for receipt of abstracts is Monday 16 November 2020, 23:59 GMT.


The conference programme will be extended across five days, and with a view to our international audience, live conference sessions will be scheduled across a number of different time zones, to enable as many of you as possible to attend and interact.

We envisage a ‘live’ three-hour session each day, and conference content will also be available on demand for three months post-event.

Full details will be available in early January 2021.



Conference registration will open in January 2021 and full details of registration fees will be available then. 



Applications for bursaries provided by the Doctors’ Support Network and Royal Medical Benevolent Fund are now closed.
