IAMM Global Café

IAMM Global Café (IGC) is a virtual networking event for IAMM members across the world. These Cafes will meet every other month, starting on 16/17 February, 2021, hosted by members of IAMM’s Committee on Global Reporting. The first IGC spotlights members from East Asia, and engages co-hosts who are actively engaged in music and medicine in different East Asian countries. Participants will have the opportunity to converse with the co-hosts, as well as each other. All IAMM members are welcome to attend these Global Cafes. Please join with a cup of coffee, tea, or your choice of libation, and enjoy the conversation!

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.

IAMM Membership entitles you to a yearly subscription of the official journal, Music and Medicine - join us here.
