WONCA Europe


VdGM's events include the annual Pre-conference (concurrent with the annual VdGM Europe Council Meeting and immediately before WONCA Europe Conference) and Forum.


Starting in 2005 VdGM has organised a Pre-conference for young and future GPs. The first Forum was organized in Barcelona in 2014.


Participants have the opportunity to be introduced to the concept of being a GP/FP in a worldly context, to exchange experiences and visions, discusss with colleagues from all over the globe  widening your perspectives and horizons, and help you to "think globally and act locally".


The Pre-conference and Forum are open to all trainees and young GP/FP (up to 5 years after qualification). There is usually a fixed number of places available and registrations are carried out in a first-come, first-served basis.


Every 3 years, VdGM joins efforts with the other networks of future and young family doctors within WONCA, in organising a World Pre-conference (just prior to the trienial WONCA World Conference). Previous World Preconferences have been organised in 2010 in Cancun, Mexico, and 2013 in Prague, the Czech Republic. The next World Preconference will take place in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
