The AMEE 2020 Virtual Conference (Mon 7th – Wed 9th September) will replace the AMEE 2020 Conference scheduled for Glasgow in September.

The programme will contain a range of sessions:

  • Invited Addresses: We’re very pleased that all the plenary speakers previously presenting at the Glasgow Conference have agreed to give their presentations virtually. Following each presentation there will be a live discussion with the opportunity for questions and answers with the speaker. To cover different time zones, these will be scheduled twice. A recording of the presentation and discussion will be available to view on demand throughout the conference and afterwards.

  • Best Practice sessions: Some of the sessions previously included as symposia will be presented as current best practice in a range of important areas in health professions education. Following each presentation there will be a live discussion with the opportunity for questions and answers with the speaker. To cover different time zones, these will be scheduled twice. A recording of the presentation and discussion will be available to view on demand throughout the conference and afterwards.

  • Masterclasses: Some of the preconference workshops will be held as state-of-the-art practical sessions incorporating activities and discussion. Masterclasses will be a mix of pre-recorded and live components to maximise interaction.  

  • Short communications, research papers, doctoral reports and Fringe sessions selected from the many abstract submissions received and themed by topic: These will be pre-recorded and available to view at any time from two weeks before the conference up to one year afterwards.  Each session will have a moderator to deliver a commentary highlighting the key messages of the theme. Questions can be left for presenters to answer asynchronously.

  • ePosters and posters selected from the abstract submissions received and themed by topic: These will all be presented through the Learning Toolbox platform previously used very successfully at AMEE conferences. They will be pre-recorded and available to view at any time from two weeks before the conference to one year afterwards.  Each session will have a moderator to deliver a commentary highlighting the key messages of the theme. Questions can be left for presenters to answer asynchronously.
