For the 4th time, the leading organisations in medical education and training across the UK come together to provide highly successful joint national UK Medical Education conferences.

The last three conferences have provided an exceptional opportunity for clinicians involved in healthcare education and training to learn, share best practice and drive current thinking in the field of medical education and training, meeting in a single conference with expertise from all.

The conference aims to provide delegates with the ideas and information which enables them to improve their educational practice, and allows them to collaborate across organisational and geographic boundaries to build greater improvements for the future. We aim, through this, to support and develop the educational leaders of today and tomorrow.

Previous delegates have told us how stimulating the conference has been, and 2021 will build on their feedback to consist of keynotes from experts with a diverse range of parallel sessions covering the full span of current issues and initiatives in medical education and training.

We are planning DEMEC 2021 with the flexibility for virtual involvement, the extent of this will be dependent on the global Pandemic.

At a time of change, risks and opportunities, with a recognised need for collaboration across traditional boundaries, this conference will inspire and motivate you as you learn with and link you to your peers across the country.
