This FREE event took place on Tuesday 28th June 2011 at the Medical Education Centre, 250 Euston Road, London. Please click the following link to see the conference flyer: Medical Education Conference flyer.
This conference was designed to explore the impact that Tomorrow's Doctors (2009) has had on the UCL MBBS curriculum as well as an opportunity to discuss current developments in the teaching and assessment of medical students at UCL.

Delegates attended one of four workshops in the morning and one of four workshops in the afternoon. The workshops encompassed assessment methods and techniques in both undergraduate and postgraduate medical training as well as curriculum development and learning and achievement in undergraduate medicine.
The conference was followed by a drinks reception in the evening at the Paul O'Gorman cafe.
