The Organising Committee of APMEC 2014 and the Medical Education Unit (MEU), Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore, National University Health System, cordially invite you to attend the 11th Asia Pacific Medical Education Conference (APMEC) from 15th to 19th January 2014 at the National University of Singapore, Singapore.
We have specially chosen our theme as " Optimising Collaboration in Medical Education - Building Bridges, Connecting Minds - Trends, Issues, Priorities, Strategies (TIPS)".
The aim of the conference is to share our experiences as educators, and learn from experts in medical and healthcare professional education some of the latest ideas, and best practices adopted internationally. For 2014, I am happy to announce that we have a wide array of pre-conference workshops covering medical and healthcare professional education as well as pre-conference training programs conducted in collaboration with the European Association of Standardised Patient Educators (ASPE), Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE) and Association for the Study of Medical Education (ASME).
The Asia Pacific Medical Education Conference has grown and strengthened over the years. It is now in its 11th year attracting participants, not only from the Asia-Pacific region, but also from around the globe. For our 10th APMEC 2013, we had more than 800 medical and healthcare professionals from over 40 countries. We hope to see an even stronger participation in 2014. As with previous APMECs, we have invited distinguished medical and health professional educators to share their experiences, expertise and wisdom at the 11th APMEC 2014.
On behalf of the Organising Committee, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to join us at our 11th APMEC 2014, and to submit abstract/s for the Conference.
I look forward to your participation and to welcoming you to Singapore in January 2014.
