Sixth International Conference of the International Association for Music and Medicine

Hosted by the Berklee Music and Health Institute


May 28–30, 2020

Berklee College of Music
Boston, MA


Join experts from around the world to convene and collaborate on the latest research, clinical cases, and theories and mechanisms underlying music and medicine. Plan now to participate in this unique international conference, held for the first time in the U.S.

The IAMM conference will be organized around special interest groups (SIGs) that will prepare a conference session and follow up post-conference to produce one of the following outcomes:

  • Research: a collaborative research proposal
  • Education: a model curriculum or course
  • Theory: a white paper on the topic
  • Clinical practice: clinical guidelines or best practices

Over the summer after the SIGs are formed, a call for papers will be sent to the general community for conference presentations. Attendees will also participate in SIG discussions.
