IAMM is excited to announce our next interdisciplinary conference on music and medicine from May 26-29, 2022 in Athens, Greece!

In view of the COVID-19 pandemic and to facilitate maximum international participation, you can opt to attend the conference virtually or in-person.

Athens is one of the world's oldest cities, offering centuries-old history to be explored and enjoyed. According to Plato, one of the first schools of music education was founded by the people of Crete followed by the musical schools of Athens, where students were taught to sing and play the lyre. We sincerely hope you will join us in this magical and historical city for our conference in-person or virtually.

Save the date! More details to follow.

Music and Medicine - The Official Journal of the IAMM

Music and Medicine is an interdisciplinary journal that serves as an integrative forum for clinical practice and research related to music interventions and applications of clinical music strategies in medicine.

Each peer-reviewed issue offers original articles, case studies, editorial commentaries, and interviews from clinical medicine, the neurosciences, behavioral sciences, nursing, and social work that translate research from music, music psychology, music cognition, music neurology, and music therapy into scientifically valid clinical applications.

The goal for Music and Medicine is to bring together information that is currently dispersed across many disciplines throughout many publications.
