U.S-U.K. Medical Sociology Conference - June 14-16 2012 - Belfast Northern Ireland: Registration opens


queen_u_belfastRegistration is now open for The Fourth US-UK Medical Sociology Conference which will be held from June 14-16 at Queens University in Belfast Northern Ireland.

The Fourth US-UK Medical Sociology conference is a meeting designed to bring together scholars with common interests in a small group-setting to network, debate, share ideas and forge new ground in medical sociology. Participation is limited to approximately 100 delegates. Previous conferences at Royal Holloway, Edinburgh and Boston have been very successful, so we suggest early registration for participants.

This is a residential conference and thus all participants will stay at one of the conference accommodations options. All attendees take meals together and attend all plenary sessions and working groups. The registration fee is all-inclusive except for accommodations. University accommodations are available at a very reasonable cost. The Conference convenes on June 14 at 5:00 pm and continues through 3:00 pm on June 16.

US and UK Ph.D. students can apply for funding bursaries for Registration and Accommodations. Applications for Ph.D. student funding are due by February 15, 2012.
