NEW for AMEE 2020!

We are pleased to introduce for AMEE 2020 the following activities

AMEE 2020 Medical Mystery Room

Inspired by the popular ’Escape Room’ concept the AMEE 2020 Medical Mystery Room is a physical adventure game in which you have to solve a series of puzzles and riddles using clues, hints and strategy to complete the objectives at hand. Players are given a time limit to unveil the secret plot which is hidden within the rooms.

What to expect?  The door slams behind you and your team… Confused and perhaps a bit scared you look around the darkened room, watching a scene that indicates something is terribly wrong… Suddenly, a news release announces a virus release that turns everyone into zombies, and describes how the cure is locked inside the room.  It is now your job to get this cure out using all your skills as a schooled health professional.  Will you make it in time?!


Poster Forum


Participants wishing to have a mounted poster but not to present it in one of the simultaneous sessions now have the opportunity to place it in the Poster Forum.  Posters submitted to the Poster Forum will be mounted throughout the Conference and available for all to view, as for other posters. However they will not be included in one of the simultaneous presentation sessions. Authors are encouraged to be by their poster at a lunch or coffee break to answer questions from participants who may want to find out more details about the work.  Posters in the Poster Forum will still be included in the conference programme, abstract book and App. All other instructions relating to poster preparation apply. There will also be an opportunity to request mentoring from one of the AMEE poster mentors.

Supporting Medical Education with Virtual and Augmented Reality

The MSc in Medical Visualisation & Human Anatomy jointly run by The Glasgow School of Art & the University of Glasgow has a strong focus on the use of innovative visualisation methods for healthcare and for medical and anatomical education. They have kindly agreed to provide the opportunity for participants to engage with a range of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) applications that have been created to drive engagement with, and support for, medical and anatomical education and to learn about the potentials and pitfalls facing developers.
You can drop in to their stand in the exhibition hall at various times throughout AMEE 2020.
