Chief Medical/Scientific Officers Conference


Registration for 2017 Chief Medical/Scientific Officers Conference on September 18-19 is now open. The meeting theme is Lessons Learned and Pathways Forward: Practical Experiences in Patient Engagement. Attendees will hear practical case examples where patient engagement was applied and had a positive impact. 

**The NHC is soliciting abstracts for practical-experience case examples for two purposes: identify cases to be presented at the conference, and develop a portfolio of case examples to be shared publicly on the NHC website for illustrative and educational purposes. If you would like to submit an abstract, please see the submission form here, and email the completed form to no later than 5:00 p.m. on June 16.  

Chief medical, scientific officers, and research directors traditionally work within their respective disease groups or industries. The CM/SO Conference brings together research leaders from patient groups, nonprofit health organizations, and industry, offering participants a rare opportunity to connect, communicate, and network.

Multi-stakeholder research leaders are able to share with a broader scientific audience their experiences, accomplishments, best practices, and resulting impact on science and medicine. Attendees learn how a variety of stakeholders, including patient organizations, pharmaceutical companies, and others, are enhancing patient access to effective treatments to improve patient outcomes.
