Invitation For Pre-Conference Workshops proposals

The Organising Committee of Ottawa-ICME 2018 invites you to submit your Pre-Conference Workshop for the joint conference being organized jointly for the first time.

Ottawa Conference is a biannual event that especially focuses on various aspects of “Assessment”, whereas ICME (International Conference on Medical Education) is also biannual event but addresses all aspects of Health Profession Education. The theme for Ottawa 2018 is ‘Authentic Assessment across Continuum of Health Professions Education’ and ICME 2018 is ‘Reforming Health Professions Education for better Healthcare & Patient Safety’.

Pre-conference workshops of the joint conference will provide a practical experience for 25-30 participants on a topic of current importance.  They are interactive, with the aim of helping participants to implement principles or procedures in their own context.  Workshops are of 3 or 6 hours’ duration and may be at introductory, intermediate or advanced level.

Submissions should be received before  12 February 2017.  If selected, this information will be included in the Provisional Programme.
