UCLMS Medical Education Conference - Transitions in Medical Education

7 May 2013

Booking has now opened for our third Medical Education Conference on the 12th June 2013!

This year’s conference programme is built on the success of our previous, very popular events. The theme for this year is transitions in medical education and training and for this reason we have organised our two annual conferences to run on consecutive days. We very much hope that this will encourage all our medical educators to attend both days and share ideas.

Medical Education Conference highlights

This year we are very fortunate to have a number of inspirational national and international speakers including Prof Sir John Tooke, Dr David Hirsh from Harvard Medical School, Prof Trudie Roberts from Leeds, Dr Vicky Tallentire, as well as Dr Anita Berlin.

There will also be a host of interactive workshops including two aimed at supporting medical educators formally credentialing their teaching.

You can book your place through our online store. 

Registration is £60 but if you also book a place on the 3TiME conference on 11th June, you can get a special discounted price of £40!
