2022 International Conference on Physician Health


Engaging organizations to achieve cultural change

The International Conference on Physician Health™ (ICPH) is a collaborative meeting of the American Medical Association, the Canadian Medical Association, and the British Medical Association.

ICPH is held every other year and is hosted by one of the founding associations. The conference provides a forum for practitioners and researchers to present innovative methods and support systems, educational programs, and recent research findings in the area of physician health. 

The conference focuses on practice steps to make medicine a more sustainable career choice. ICPH promotes an overall healthier culture for physicians by offering practical evidence-based solutions, practice skills, and resources and tools for attendees to take back to their workplace and readily implement.
