The conference is for trainees and early career professionals across all aspects of healthcare (it’s not just for doctors!) and open to any level of experience in medical education.Importantly, there will be ample opportunity to present your medical education work at this national conference. To do so, submit an abstract for oral presentations, virtual posters or a workshop. TASME conferences also provide a networking opportunity. While in the virtual world we recognise this remains different from a chat over coffee and posters, we hope to enable you to meet like-minded individuals and share ideas through our conference platform.Following the success of previous year’s workshop submissions – we are again offering an opportunity to submit a proposal to run a 40 minute virtual workshop at the conference. For information on abstract submissions for workshops, poster and oral presentation abstracts, see below. ** Abstract submission now closed **  For any queries please contact us on tasme-conference@asme.org.uk.
