DEMEC conference funding opportunities & CLOSING DATE FOR ABSTRACTS

Posted on


The Developing Excellence in Medical Education Conference takes place in Manchester this year. In medical education circles this is a big deal, bring together a whole host of key training organisations in the UK. It’s jointly organised by COPMeD, HEE, NACT UK, NES, COGPED, AOME, ASME and GMC. Now I know that’s a lot of acronyms but you will surely recognise most of them.

This will be a key conference for anyone involved in undergraduate or postgraduate education and since it’s just up the road we really want CMFT to have a presence there. If you have a healthy study leave budget then great – book and go. However, we recognise that there are pressures on training budgets and leave so the postgrad team may be able to support 2-3 trainees to attend.

So, if you……

  1. Are a trainee doctor here at CMFT
  2. Can get a poster together and submitted by the 6th June (not a lot of time I know)
  3. Can send your poster to postgrad with a one page explanation of
    1. why we should fund you.
    2. what you will get out of attending
    3. how it will help your personal development
    4. what the trust will get back from your attendance
    5. then send to [email protected]

….then we will fund your registration fees.
