Description: The International Medical Education Conference (IMEC) is a forum for forging and renewing friendships between educators of healthcare professions from around the world; a platform to exchange ideas and experience and showcase innovations. It is usually held in March/April every year for two days (to coincide with the Annual Academic Council of the IMU), preceded by Pre-Conference workshops the day before. The theme changes with each Conference and this year’s theme is “Reshaping Health Professions Education for Equity, Inclusivity and Diversity”.


Equity, inclusivity, and diversity (EID) are core values in health professions education that should be ingrained in our training environments for learners and educators to achieve high-quality patient care, effective learning, and pioneer discovery. IMEC 2022 aims to address these values across the continuum of health professions education. Our goal is to connect healthcare professionals, educators, and learners to rethink and reshape current beliefs in EID, ultimately to develop culturally competent healthcare providers. We hope to explore topics related to ethnicity, socioeconomic status, disability, gender, age, and other factors to align learners and educators with diverse communities and embrace the differences in achieving health equity and inclusivity in education and healthcare.


IMEC 2022 has lined up an exciting programme that will explore on the Reshaping Health Professions Education for Equity, Inclusivity and Diversity with the sub-theme as below:


Leadership

Student Assessment

Student Admission

Teaching and Learning

Faculty Development

Curriculum Design

Student Empowerment

The conference will be preceded by several pre-conference workshops on 14 of October 2022. The main conference on 15 and 16 October 2022 will commence with a keynote, followed by plenaries, symposia, panel discussions, and oral and E-poster presentations that inspirational speakers from many regions will share.
