18th Ottawa Conference

The 18th Ottawa Conference and The International Conference on Medical Education (ICME) 2018 will be held concurrently at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates from 10-14 March 2018.

The continuum of healthcare professions education and assessment will be addressed, with sessions covering undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing education. The Conference provides the opportunity to focus on developments in the assessment of competence in medicine and the healthcare professions internationally by following the Ottawa streams, or to look more generally at education in the healthcare professions by following the ICME streams. All participants will have the opportunity to attend
