The theme for year's in-person 2023 Physicians for Human Rights National Student Conference is "Equipping Leaders in Human Rights Advocacy". Our goal is to provide students and trainees the practical knowledge and tools to be effective advocates for marginalized populations in the communities they serve. We hope that you will join us for this time of learning, networking, and discovery.

In addition to the regular conference programming - which will include speakers and breakout sessions featuring local and national leaders in human rights advocacy work - the schedule of events will include a poster session featuring student-led research and opportunities for peer-to-peer networking. During this two-day conference, we hope that you will be challenged, inspired, and encouraged to be the bridge between medicine, science, and law to help secure human rights and justice for all persons.

Physicians for Human Rights invites you to submit abstract/poster submissions of original research. Submissions can highlight domestic and/or international projects that relate in any way to human rights issues. Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words. 

This conference is open to undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students as well as early-stage professionals in related fields, specifically, individuals with interests in medicine, social work, public health, law, global development, and humanitarian aid.
