Bienvenue à Strasbourg!


The Saint-Exupéry Network team, also known as the French Vasco da Gamians, is very pleased to invite you to the beautiful city of Strasbourg for the 4th VdGM Forum, from Friday 21st to Saturday 22nd of April 2017.


Why Strasbourg? 
Because it is a European city with a human-sized dimension where everything is easy to reach on foot, public bicycle or public transport. Because of its international accessibility. Because Strasbourg is classified as a UNESCO world heritage site and is renowned for its food, history and culture.


The forum main theme is « No borders, no limits, let’s push the GP world forward! ». It particularly aims to approach original topics on Family Medicine. Topics that will make us think outside the box, be it through oral communications, posters, workshops or plenaries! Together, let’s think in concrete terms how we can make our dreams come true in collaboration with patients, researchers, GP experts and more… Yes, you can expect surprises!


Registrants will be able to increase their participation in the event by sending their scientific works whether they are research, professional experiences, clinical cases... 


As the previous VdGM Forums, the meeting has been organized without the involvement of the pharmaceutical industry, with a low cost format, in order to promote the engagement of young family doctors and patients.

We're also proud to announce that the 4th VdGM Forum has been successfully and officially accredited as a "Patients Included" event (link to external website). If you wish to read on our inclusive policies and practices please follow this link to the accreditation claim put together by the Host Organising Committee.

For the occasion, we are also organizing three pre-Forum Workshops and a "Conference Exchange" in which European young doctors will enjoy a one-week rotation in a GP office.


We are working with great enthusiasm so that you can enjoy a high quality event and an unforgettable experience!


« Rendez-vous » the 21st and 22nd of April 2017!
