A career in medical education: the ultimate balancing act?
The TASME Spring Conference is an annual one-day medical education conference aimed at trainee doctors interested in medical education. This year’s theme is “A Career in Medical Education: The Ultimate Balancing Act?”
The day will feature prominent keynote speakers and interactive workshops focusing on establishing and maintaining a career in medical education alongside busy clinical commitments. The conference is targeted at trainees with all levels of experience in medical education, aiming to help develop your career and interests.
Importantly, there will also be ample opportunity to share your medical education work on a national level by submitting abstracts for both oral and poster presentations, and the conference will also provide networking opportunities, enabling you to meet likeminded individuals and share ideas with those in similar positions.
NEW FOR THIS YEAR, we are offering opportunity to submit a workshop proposal to run a 40-minute workshop at the conference, in addition to abstract submissions for poster and oral presentations.
This year the TASME Spring Conference will be held at Newcastle University Medical School, Saturday 13th April 2019.
The conference will take place in the Cookson Building, Newcastle Medical School. This is a short walk from the city centre, behind the Royal Victoria Infirmary. Directions are as follows:
