2024 Division Scholarly Program: Call for Submissions

Program Chair: Deirdre McCaughey, University of Calgary


On behalf of the Health Care Management (HCM) division, I welcome & encourage you to submit your paper and symposia proposals for consideration for the 84th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management to be held in Chicago, Illinois, USA, Friday, 9 August through Tuesday, 13 August 2024.


The HCM division invites submissions addressing all facets of management in the health care sector. Topics include: management of health care organizations, public policy issues, health care finance and marketing, comparisons of health care across countries; and empirical or conceptual applications of theory in health care organizations and care settings.



The HCM division also encourages papers and symposia focused on the AOM 2024 conference theme, "Innovating for the Future”.  This theme invites submission on the interplay of innovation, policy, and purpose as a lens for rethinking conventional ways of leading, managing, and organizing.  


Provides conference attendees a coherent, focused session of either a series of authored papers explicitly linked to a common theme, or a group of panelists engaged in a formal interactive discussion around particular issues or questions. Symposia are more likely to be accepted if they are designed and submitted for co-sponsorship by multiple divisions or interest groups.

PhD Students

Papers with a PhD student as the first or sole author should be clearly identified at the time of submission. We also encourage papers that are earlier in development that would benefit from collegial feedback.

Submission Process

All submissions must be made through the AOM Submission Center. The Submission Center will open in early December 2023. The submission deadline is 9 January 2024 at 17:00 ET (GMT-5/UTC-5), but earlier submissions are encouraged. Please carefully review the submission guidelines and formatting instructions before submitting.   that there is limited space on the scholarly program; therefore, not all submissions will be accepted.

If your paper or symposium is accepted you are committing to attend sessions, which will take place August 9th-13th, 2024.  If you have questions please contact the HCM Division’s Program Chair, Deirdre McCaughey.
