CFP: Educating the Whole Physician: Creating Effective Interdisciplinary Programs for Aspiring Healthcare Professionals

April 4-6, 2019, University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, IN, USA

Modern medicine is a chimera of the biological, the social, the political, and the economic — a fact easily lost sight of under the rigorous demands of acquiring technical competency, but nonetheless critical to the success of the overall enterprise. Illuminating the multiple dimensions of medicine as a practice, a science and an institution is both the responsibility of and an opportunity for social scientists and humanists in the contemporary university.

Call for papers

The Reilly Center for Science, Technology & Values at the University of Notre Dame is organizing a workshop that would provide a forum for discussing how to educate aspiring physicians so that they enter medical school with the critical reasoning skills and sense of mission they need to successfully navigate all the challenges of medical practice. We are looking for presenters ready to speak to both what physicians need to know and to the best practices of organizing programs that would provide such training. Above all, however, we are looking for presenters ready to engage in in-depth discussion.

Please send a title, a 250 word abstract and a 2 page CV to by December 1st.

Deadline: December 1, 2018
