International conference "Diplomats for Life" (ICDL3) is a 3rd annual medical education conference organised by Lithuanian University of Health Sciences in cooperation with Association of Lithuanian Junior Doctors.
The theme of this year is "Evolution in Medical Training". This is to mark the significance of paradigm shift that Lithuania is underoing in postgraduate education of medical specialists. After laying the legislative foundation, our medical schools are getting ready for the establishment of Entrustable professional activities (EPAs) in residency studies. While aimed at creating competent, inovative, fully fledged future physicians, this evolution of medical training certainly will require a lot of time and effort. Like all big challenges do.
On this occasion, ICDL3 will bring medical educators from six different countries, some of which already have EPA stories of success to share. Conference will host well-known regional speakers, patient representatives, medical industry representatives and much more.
