Education programme at SAPC ASM 2019

We are really pleased that teaching, training and educational research are so well represented at this year’s conference.   Primary care educational research is clearly gaining in sophistication, strength and impact,  with positive developments in terms of multi-institution work and collaborative focus on common goals.  For example, research on the importance of authenticity and continuity in medical education and the role of  medical schools in enhancing recruitment.  This new vigour has in no small part been spearheaded by the enthusiasm and commitment of the Heads of Teaching at all UK medical schools and the activities of the SAPC Educational Research Special Interest Group (SIG).  We are especially grateful to SIG leads  Sophie Park and Hugh Alberti  for hosting the educational symposium this year.

We hope you really enjoy the educational content of the conference – if you have any suggestions for developments, in future years please let us know.
