5th International Conference for Research in Medical Education

15.03. - 17.03.2017, Düsseldorf


Dear Colleagues,

We are happy to host the 5th International Conference for Research in Medical Education from 15-17 March 2017 at Heinrich Heine University and to welcome you to Düsseldorf, one of the most vibrant cities in the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan area.

Learning in a clinical environment with real patients involves knowledge, skills and attitudes within a complex area. It therefore needs educational supervision with appropriate teaching and assessment formats. Especially the assessment of clinical performance on what doctors actually do in real practice is becoming increasingly important in under- and postgraduate medical education, and in the continuing medical education (CME) and continuing professional development (CPD) as well.

We address a broad target group from different professions in health care, including members of medical education societies, medical faculties, medical organisations and private hospital operators as well.
Our conference format is based on active contribution of the participants, not only beforehand but also during the conference.
Fortunately, the quantity and quality of submitted abstracts was very satisfying and we are excited about their presentation in the short communications on site, but also about the results of our World Café and Bar Camp sessions.

Welcome to Düsseldorf and enjoy your stay with us!

Thomas Rotthoff
On behalf of the Scientific and Organising Committee
