We are very pleased to announce the 2nd edition of the
EURACT Medical Education Conference 2018!
The conference will be held in the beautiful city of Leuven, Belgium on September 21 - 22, 2018. The conference will provide an opportunity for practicing family medicine teachers and researchers to meet and exchange research findings and new ideas in order to continue the development of Family Medicine in Europe.
This conference seeks to emphasize an important stage in the development of the discipline of Family Medicine which is to ensure it has a secure academic base. We are particularly looking for more justification and clarification research in education to provide a strong evidence base that will underpin the enthusiastic educational efforts of so many teachers in Europe. The department of Family Medicine in Leuven is happy to host this conference on the occasion of its 50th anniversary.
