Each year since 1973 AMEE has organised an annual conference in a European city. The AMEE annual conference is now established as the key meeting for all involved in medical and healthcare professions education and regularly attracts over 3,000 participants from around the world. Participants are typically teachers, educationists, researchers, administrators and students who come together to network, share ideas and hear what's happening in the area. As well as coming to hear from plenary speakers and taking part in the many workshops and symposia, participants are invited to present their own work in the form of short communications and posters, and to receive feedback from an international audience.
AMEE 2017 will take place in Helsinki, Finland, from 26-30 August, 2017.
The Ottawa Conference on the Assessment of Competence in Medicine and the Healthcare Professions were set up by Professor Ian Hart (Ottawa, Canada) and Professor Ronald Harden (Dundee, UK) in 1985. Held biennially, they provide a forum for medical and other healthcare professions educators to network and share ideas on all aspects of the assessment of competence in both clinical and non-clinical domains, throughout the continuum of education.
The Ottawa Conference on the Assessment of Competence in Medicine and the Healthcare Professions is the leading international forum for exchanging ideas and developments in the field, with the aim of improving healthcare and healthcare delivery around the world. AMEE continues to support the Ottawa Conference.
The 16th Ottawa Conference and the 12th Canadian Conference on Medical Education (CCME) will be held conjointly, in Ottawa, April 25-29, 2014.
