We are delighted to invite you to the first Italian Conference Exchange Programme, prior to the National Conference of the Giotto Movement, the Italian Young GP Association, which will be held the next 24th May 2014 in the beautiful city of Modena. On the 23rd May a Pre-Conference open to Italian trainees will be held.
The theme of the Conference will be “The Core & Essence of General Practice”.
Conference Exchange
We would like to invite 15-20 European Junior GPs or GP trainees to discover our Primary Care System. Participants will have the chance to visit a GP practice for two days and attend the Giotto Movement Congress.
The Conference exchange programme will take place from Wednesday 21st May to Saturday 24th May 2014 (expected arrival day of the participants: 20th May 2014.
From 21st to 22nd participants will visit an Italian GP practice
We are working to offer free accommodation to the majority of the international delegates during the two-day Practice visit (20th - 22nd May). However, for those who won’t receive a free accommodation, we will assist them in finding an affordable solution. Hosts will be allocated on a “first come, first served” rule and in Modena participants will be also helped to find a cheap accommodation.
In the afternoon of 23th May, Delegates will reach Modena to attend the Pre-Conference and the Junior GP Congress, “The Core & Essence of General Practice”. During the Preconference International Delegates will be asked to present their Primary Care system during a workshop. The main Conference will be held in Italian mostly, but a separate track with workshops and panels in English will also be organised for our International participants. Social events in the evenings of 23th and 24th will be organised together with Italian colleagues in the wonderful Modena city-centre.
