Forum Organisation & Committees


Having an annual Forum is a dream come true for the Vasco da Gama Movement. Behind it all stands a group of hard working residents and establishing family physicians who are willing to do selfless efforts to provide an invigorating event, both scientifically and socially, at an affordable price.

The members of the Host Organising Committee (HOC) of the 4th Forum warmly thank everyone who helped in achieving this goal, including the sponsors and partners.

Social responsibility


VdGM has long recognised that not all new and future family doctors​ ​have the same economic means. GPs and GP trainees in some parts of​ ​Europe face significant economic challenges including being able to find​ ​funds to attend VdGM events.


From previous experience, we also know that at every VdGM meeting​ ​there are individuals who want to be able to make a contribution in order​ ​to assist less well off colleagues to be able to attend the​ ​meeting.

Abstract submission


The 4th VdGM Forum Host Organising Committee is now ready to welcome your research, work, experience and projects in General Practice.

We want YOU to tell us your story, share your knowledge and education skills or share views on research projects. 




The online registration is now open. Click here to register! 


There you'll find everything you need to register to the 4th VdGM Forum in Strasbourg.


Pre-forum workshops


Three workshops are planned to be held in the morning of Friday 21st of April 2017.

Pre-Forum workshop 1 – « Perfect poster is possible»

Pre-forum exchange program


Following VdGM tradition, the 4th Forum will present you the opportunity to participate in an exchange program. Twenty-five residents and establishing family physicians will have the chance to discover the life of French resident/family physician.
