Call for Papers: Reconsidering Health Professions Education Research in Contemporary Sociology
Organizers: Laura E. Hirshfield, UIC College of Medicine
Tania M. Jenkins, UNC - Chapel Hill, Department of Sociology
Kelly Underman, Drexel University, Department of Sociology
There has been a recent resurgence of interest in the sociology of health professions education. From changes to the MCAT to cultural competency, there is a renewed focus on this classic area of sociology, using a range of exciting new theories and diverse methodologies. Building on last year’s invigorating discussions, this mini-conference considers questions relevant to training, socialization, and education in the health professions.
We are soliciting submissions for the 2020 Mini-Conference on the Sociology of Health Professions Education to take place at the annual meeting of the Eastern Sociological Society, February 27 – March 1, 2020, in Philadelphia, PA.
We welcome submission on a range of health professions, including but not limited to:
Topics may include:
Our hope is to use this mini-conference to build on the growing momentum of interest, and bring together a wide range of scholars at different career stages and institution types (i.e., those in traditional sociology departments and those working in health professions schools).
Those wishing to present papers should submit an abstract of 250 words on the ESS Mini-conference page.
If you have any questions, please contact one of the organizers: Laura Hirshfield (firstname.lastname@example.org), Tania Jenkins (email@example.com) or Kelly Underman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
