4th Research in Medical Education (RIME) Symposium 2015

19.03-21.03.2015, München


Dear Colleagues,

We welcome you all to Munich in the name of the Medical Faculties of Ludwig-Maximilians-University and Technical University to enjoy the 4th Research in Medical Education (RIME) Symposium 2015. The focus of this meeting will be on the chances and challenges of competency-based Medical Education. Participants from 10 countries will come to Munich to contribute their research results for a growing body of evidence to make informed educational decisions.

We are pleased to continue the RIME legacy that started 2009 in Heidelberg. The venue is held in association with the Master of Medical Education-Program of Heidelberg University and the German Association of Medical Faculties (Medizinischer Fakultätentag, MFT) as well as the Association of Medical Education in the German-speaking countries (Gesellschaft für Medizinische Ausbildung, GMA). RIME is the place to exchange and discuss cutting-edge research projects in Medical Education, to learn from international experts and to develop new ways to critically reflect on what we are doing every day: Trying to improve Medical Education for a better health care system. That is why we should take a closer look at student outcomes and competencies as the basis for postgraduate training and lifelong learning.

We wish you a successful meeting and hope for stimulating discussions and exchange!

Yours sincerely,

Martin Fischer & Pascal Berberat
