Meet the Professor
Students and young scholars are invited to meet in small groups with distinguished faculty to discuss their common interests and learn more about the field. Meet the Professor sessions are organized early in the conference so that you'll have occasions throughout the meeting to confer with professors and colleagues. Participation is limited to ASBH members.
Early Career Advisor Program
ASBH members who are early in their careers in bioethics of the humanities may submit a work-in-progress to more experienced members in the field. The papers or projects that are submitted will be read in advance by advisors who will then discuss the work during one-on-one advisory sessions during the annual meeting. The expectation is these sessions will lead to publication or completion of a project that will significantly advance your career.
Student Paper Award
Students who are actively pursuing but have not yet achieved an advanced degree (MD, PhD, JD or equivalent) may submit papers of no more than 3,500 words in length for consideration for the prestigious ASBH Student Paper Award. All submissions are assessed anonymously. Coauthored papers are eligible only if all of the authors are students as defined above. Previous winners are not eligible for consideration. Finalists will be invited to present their papers at the annual meeting.
