2017 attendee feedback:

“Fantastic conference – I came away with many ideas to consider and implement changes”

“Very valuable addition to my educational knowledge – even those areas with which I was already familiar revised my perspective for the better”

The leading organisations in medical education and training across the UK came together to provide a joint national UK Medical Education conference.

The last 2 conferences have provided an exceptional opportunity for pressurised 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.

The conference will consist of stimulating keynotes and a diverse range of parallel sessions covering the full span of current issues and initiatives in medical education and training.

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.
