Global Medical Education – Developments and Challenges

Throughout the ASME ASM 2018 #asmeasm2018 there will be a PowerPoint slide presentation showing in the Northern Rock Foundation Hall. The slides have been submitted by friends of ASME from around the globe - where they tell us what developments are happening within their country or institution and also the challenges they currently face in terms of medical education.  Please take some time to look at this presentation. It might be Useful to reflect on our similarities and differences and perhaps consider what our collective similarities and differences are at this moment in time. You can leave comments and ideas on the flipchart adjacent to the TV screen showing the slides. We hope you enjoy this aspect of the conference.   The slideshow will be added to the ASM conference pages after the event.
