New dates for the 3rd EURACT Educational Conference in Budapest: 24-25 September 2021

Dear Colleague,

Unfortunately we have to inform you that the third EURACT Medical Education Conference will be postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The third EURACT Medical Education Conference will be held in the beautiful city of Budapest, Hungary, on 24th - 25th September 2021.

Conference venue: Semmelweis University, 1094 Budapest, Tűzoltó utca 37-47.

The conference will provide an opportunity for practicing General Practice/Family Medicine (GP/FM) teachers and researchers to meet and exchange experiences, new ideas and medical education research findings in order to continue the development of GP/FM in Europe. Education is crucial in strengthening GP/FM. Innovation in education gives energy to teachers and students. We need scientific evidence for the added value of these educational innovations. By doing so we all bring GP/FM further!

The Hungarian Academy of Teachers in Family Medicine is happy to host this conference which will offer an interesting programme including distinguished international keynote speakers, oral, poster and workshop presenters discussing innovative and broad scientific topics related to GP/FM education.
