Not everyone can find the funds, or the time, to attend an AMEE Conference so we will again be offering the option of registering for AMEE Live! for AMEE 2018, Basel, Switzerland

If you are interested in curriculum planning, teaching and learning methods, assessment or educational management, there will be something to interest you.

From the 26-29 August 2018 you can participate in an exciting range of plenary and symposia sessions covering key issues in education in the healthcare professions and hear live interviews from speakers and participants.  You can take part in the discussions and ask questions of the speakers from your own home or from your institution as an individual or with a group of colleagues.  All you need is a broadband connection.  You can also watch the sessions later at a time convenient to you.

If you’re attending AMEE 2018 in person, you will also have free access to the streams, so you can take part in one of the other sessions and catch up on the symposia later.
