APM SIF Undergraduate Medical Education Special Interest Forum

2nd October 2019, General Medical Council, 350 Euston Road, London NW1 3JN

“GMC Outcomes for Graduates: implications for undergraduate Palliative Care education”

We are pleased to announce the seventh annual meeting of the APM Undergraduate Education Special Interest Forum, co-led by Dr Stephen Barclay (Cambridge) and Professor John Ellershaw (Liverpool).  This annual meeting presents a much-needed networking opportunity for those involved in medical student palliative care education; an opportunity to share ideas, developments, best practice and education research. RCP CPD approval is being sought. 

The focus of the 2019 conference will be the implications of the recent General Medical Council “Outcomes for Graduates for our teaching of medical students. The GMC are kindly hosting the day in their London office: senior members of the GMC will be giving presentations. We will also work in small groups to discuss revisions of the APM curriculum for undergraduate medical education in the light of recent progress in the field and the GMC “Outcomes for Graduates”.

Abstract submissions are invited relating to sharing best practice and research in undergraduate medical education. See the abstract submission form (MS Word version or PDF) and guidance.
