Professionalism and the Restoration
of Trust in Health Care
APHC 8th Annual Conference
April 29 - May 1, 2020
Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile
The 2020 APHC conference will focus on the restoration of trust for health care professionals working within complex organizations. We invite papers that address educational and system level approaches to promote and preserve trust between patients, clinicians and communities, and across professional disciplines at various levels of education, training and practice. General papers in the field of professionalism are also welcomed. These include interdisciplinary scholarship on faculty development, graduate, undergraduate and pre-professional education, as well as topics such as ethics, humanism, social justice, well-being, and innovations in assessment.
