PDF Call for Abstracts

Under the conference theme of “The Story of Community-Engaged Health Professional Education and Research: Putting Communities in the Driver’s Seat,” the ICEMEN 2016 program will offer you an exciting opportunity to learn from and contribute to international perspectives on social accountability and community engagement in health professional education, research and service.

Jointly hosted by the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) and Flinders University School of Medicine, and in partnership with Training for Health Equity Network (THEnet) ICEMEN 2016 will welcome presenters and delegates from around the world in Sault Ste. Marie, Northern Ontario from June 20-25, 2016. The dynamic program will also be held in conjunction with other exciting educational opportunities such as the Northern Health Research Conference (NHRC) and the Aboriginal Research Gathering.

Five conference streams offer diverse opportunities to participate in thought-provoking discussions and share your scholarly work with international colleagues. The conference themes are:

  • Community Engagement
  • Social Accountability
  • Community-Based Research
  • Medical and Health Professional Education
  • Cultural Perspectives in Aboriginal and Global Health

Suggested topics under each theme are identified at icemen2016.ca/conference. We invite you to let the list inspire rather than direct you!

Presentation formats will vary, including podium or poster presentations, workshops, and PeARLS. Visit icemen2016.ca/conference to learn more about presentation formats, and to learn more about registration, the conference program, and abstract submission (including format, review, and publication). Information will be continually added to this website as it is confirmed, so we invite you to visit regularly for updates. We look forward to receiving your abstract(s) through our online abstracts submission form.

Don’t forget to watch our social media channels for conference news!
