2024 National Student Conference


Institute of Medical Ethics National Student Conference - Ethics of the Mind

This year our conference is focused on Ethics of the Mind. This is a broad topic encompassing many interesting and complex ethical debates, including mental illness, forensics and drugs. Your abstracts are welcome to reflect this theme, but we also welcome abstracts based on any other ethical topics. We’re looking for thought-provoking, detailed abstracts which show research conducted around an ethical topic. Please submit either as a presentation or poster.

Submit your abstract at https://ime.datawareonline.co.uk/Abstract-Submission/Submission-Form/eventId/1090

We would like to invite you to attend the 2024 national conference organised by the IME Student Council. The day is aimed at all students and foundation doctors with an interest in medical ethics, and with a variety of workshops encompassing clinical ethics, global health issues and ethical dilemmas in research, there will be something for everyone!
