Did you attend WONCA Europe Conference 2015 in Istanbul?   Inspired by the significant number of young doctors attending WONCA2015, the VdGM Education & Training Group in collaboration with members of other YDMs prepared a survey to assess young doctors' participation at the abstract presentations as well as the impact it had on them.

WONCA 2013: Training for Family Physicians: Time to Go Global? A collaborative workshop of VdGM with EURACT

The Training for Family Physicians: Time to Go Global? collaborative workshop will be held during the WONCA World 2013 Conference Prague on Wednesday 26th June 2013, at 3.30pm (room North Hall). Organised by the Vasco da Gama Movement and EURACT, moderated by Jessica Watson, Alice Shiner, Luisa Pettigrew, Greg Irving, Lynda Redwood-Campbell, Jessica Evert, Yvonne Leeuwen Robert Burman, Roar Maagaard. Objective: In the increasingly interdependent world of the 21st century, global health is on our doorsteps and in our consulting rooms. People travel and diseases move beyond national borders more rapidly than ever. Family doctors increasingly serve multicultural societies with diverse needs. Physicians are powerful advocates for health, requiring engagement with issues of globalisation, health inequalities, climate change and political instability. There is an increasing recognition of the importance of global health education at an undergraduate level, however less work has been done at a postgraduate level, in particular with a focus on primary care.
