Submission Types
Please see PHM 2023 Submission Guidelines at the bottom of this page for more information on submission types.

  1. PHM Stories The goal of PHM Stories is to help people reconnect with their purpose in medicine. This is meant to be a TED-style talk. This is a space for an open forum, focused on authentic stories. The past few years have been challenging, and we want to provide a space for sharing lessons learned within the PHM community.
  2. Mini-Plenary Sessions will be allotted a maximum of 75 minutes and should be didactic in nature with audience engagement.
  3. Workshops Interactive Sessions will be allotted 90-minute timeframe for presentation and should be engaging and interactive. The room will be set in round tables to allow for further engagement.
  4. Clinical Quick Hits will be allotted a maximum of 35 minutes for presentation and should be didactic.
  5. General Topic submissions give you the opportunity to submit the content that you would like to see at the PHM conference. These topics have the opportunity to be presented as any one of our presentation types. You may submit a general topic or a general topic with speaker suggestion. Please note, no acceptance or declination emails will be sent to you, the submitter.
