WONCA Europe

Submission of Abstracts and Posters

 

The Vasco da Gama Movement (VdGM) is the working network of trainees and junior Family Doctors within the European Organization of Family Doctors (WONCA Europe). We have a presence in 32 European countries, from Ireland to Ukraine and from Norway to Spain. The member associations include National Junior Family Doctors Associations, Residents’ Associations, Colleges and Senior GP/FM Scientific Associations.
 

We strongly believe that the progress of our network depends on you! Our people! On whether you share our mission of promoting the future of universally accessible high quality Family Medicine in your country. We provide a unique Pan European platform: a platform in which members meet regularly and have the chance to establish and develop good professional relationships which are an essential component of launching new and extended projects. 
 

In February 2014, we launched our Pan European meeting for trainees and new Family Doctors, the VdGM Forum. The 2nd VdGM Forum will take place in Dublin from 20th – 21st February 2015. Our objective is to strengthen the relationships between our members, provide a true platform based on continuity and offer a tailored scientific and cultural programme.
 

We need your input! No matter whether you are a novice or an expert in research in Family Medicine, you are invited to present your ideas, expertise or even critiques or failures to junior colleagues who may support you, collaborate with you and for sure, understand you! 
 

The Forum will focus on the following topics:

  • The future of family medicine
  • Innovation
  • Awareness
  • Career development
  • Research skills
     

We are accepting: 

  • Submissions of ideas / proposals for workshops including collaborative workshops
  • Submissions of research for presentation in poster format
  • Submissions of research for discussion in a 5 minute single slide oral presentation
