Prevocational Medical Education Forum Monday, 18 October 2021

2021 ANZPMEF 

This annual trans-Tasman conference will be opened by Director-General of Health, Dr Ashley Bloomfield. Our main theme 'Travelling forward together - He waka eke noa' acknowledges that all of us involved in medical education and training are in this waka together.

A number of topical issues will be discussed under three key themes:

  • Transitions and innovations
  • Health equity and culturally safety
  • Professionalism and wellbeing

There will be a mixture of live-streamed sessions and Q&A, panel sessions and workshops all delivered through an advanced and easy to use virtual platform. Sessions will be recorded and available to participants to view On-Demand for 90 days after the end of the Forum.

There are three keynote speakers:

Dr Jason Frank (Canada), a clinician-educator whose research interests include competency-based education, faculty development, program evaluation and curriculum development.

Dr Rhys Jones (Aotearoa/New Zealand), a public health physician whose research focuses on ethnic inequalities and indigenous health in health professional education.

Professor Trudie Roberts (UK), the Immediate Past President of the Association of Medical Education in Europe who will speak on issues to do with professionalism and integrity.

The ANZPMEF aims to facilitate collaborative discussions on medical education and provide a platform to share the challenges and successes of prevocational medical education. This is an opportunity to present research and innovations, or to be involved in topical and informative discussions. Submission of abstracts is now open and close on 30 June.
