In 2014, we are ready to launch a Pan European meeting for trainees and junior Family Doctors, the VdGM Forum, which will take place in Barcelona on 7th-8th February 2014. Our objective is to strengthen the relationships between our members, provide a true platform based on continuity and offer a tailored scientific and cultural programme.
We strongly need your input! No matter whether you are a novice or an expert in research in Family Medicine you are kindly invited to present your ideas, expertise or even critiques or failure to junior colleagues who may support you, collaborate with you and for sure – understand you!
The Forum will focus on the following topics:
  • the Future of Family Medicine
  • Emergency Medicine and Out-of-Hours Services
  • Participatory Medicine
  • Career Development
  • Research Skills, and
  • Emerging Technologies in Healthcare.
