Joint congress of the Gesellschaft für Medizinische Ausbildung (GMA) and the Arbeitskreis zur Weiterentwicklung der Lehre in der Zahnmedizin (AKWLZ)

30.09. - 03.10.2015, Leipzig

Welcome to Leipzig!

We are delighted to welcome you to our first joint conference of the GMA and AKWLZ, which is being held from 30th September to 3rd October 2015 in Leipzig.

According to the motto "Developing competencies in the tension field of economics", we will discuss our objectives in medical education while taking into consideration the economic framework in workshops, poster sessions, and short lectures of keynote speakers. With the development of the Competency-based Learning Objectives Catalogue in the fields of medicine and dentistry (NKLM, NKLZ), a broad and fundamental debate of our education objectives has been conducted. But are these competency-based objectives for a high-level education actually implementable in the environment of the local universities? Can the balancing act between limited resources and the education objectives succeed? How can the competency-based catalogue be integrated in the daily routine? In the context of the 1000th anniversary of the city of Leipzig and the 600th anniversary of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Leipzig, the cosmopolitan city of Leipzig provides the ideal setting for an exchange of experiences within a welcoming atmosphere.

The congress location is situated in the city centre. Therefore all venues are located within walking distance. For more information, please visit Please join us and use this opportunity for an inspiring exchange of experiences with colleagues. We are looking forward to your visit.

For the congress team
Rainer Haak and Andreas Fuchß
