SAPC 2011 Conference in Bristol

The Society for Academic Primary Care in the UK would like to invite up to 10 outstanding young Vasco da Gama Movement GP researchers from Europe to attend a conference exchange from the 6-8th July 2011 in Bristol, UK.

Delegates will be hosted with UK academic GPs or GP trainees, and will have the opportunity to spend half a day in a UK GP practice as well as attending the SAPC conference. The program will consist of high quality research presentations, workshops and social events. Specific workshops for the international delegates will offer the chance to find out the situation for GP research in different countries. Delegates should be an enthusiastic group of people who are willing to participate actively and spin off their experiences back home.

This invitation is open to GP trainees and young GPs within the first 5 years of qualification who have been involved in, or have a strong interest in research. The exchange would benefit from young European GP researchers from as many different countries as possible. Places will be offered on a first come first served basis and applications need to be submitted via your country's VdGM Council Representative. Those who will attend are encouraged to submit abstracts to the conference: abstract submission deadline is Friday March 4th (www.sapc.ac.uk/2011/)

Delegates will be offered reduced price entry to the conference at £220, which will include accommodation with a host, visit to a UK GP practice and free attendance at the drinks reception.
