The next biennial Philosophy of Medicine Roundtable will be held at the University of Toronto on 23-24 June 2017.

Philosophy of Medicine Roundtable: Call for Abstracts
We welcome papers in any area of philosophy of medicine, public health or healthcare, including epistemological and metaphysical issues in medicine (but not bioethics), from a variety of philosophical approaches. We particularly encourage submissions focused on epistemological issues related to population and public health. To submit an abstract, please upload a 500-word abstract to EasyChair by 1 February 2017. Abstracts will undergo blind review and should not contain information that will allow identification of the author.
Local Organizers: Jonathan Fuller, Benjamin Chin-Yee and Ross Upshur.
Scientific committee: Rachel Ankeny, Alexander Bird, Alex Broadbent, Havi Carel, Fred Gifford, Harold Kincaid, Miriam Solomon, Julian Reiss, Jeremy Simon, David Teira.
This Roundtable is supported by the Faculty of Medicine, Medical Alumni Association, and Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto.
