Dear Colleagues,

For Year 2015, we are extremely delighted to share with you that the 12th APMEC will be held in conjunction with the 3rd International Conference on Faculty Development in the Health Professions (ICFDHP) from 4th to 8th February 2015 at the National University of Singapore, Singapore. This is the first time ICFDHP is held in Asia and we believe it will benefit, not only Singapore but also our entire region. In view of the joint organisation of the two conferences in 2015, we have specially chosen our theme as "Enhancing Faculty Development at the Workplace: From Theory to Practice - Trends, Issues, Priorities, Strategies (TIPS)".

The aim of the conference is to share our experiences as educators, and learn from experts in medical and healthcare professional education some of the latest ideas, and best practices adopted internationally. For 2015, I am happy to announce that we have a wide array of pre-conference workshops covering medical and healthcare professional education as well as pre-conference training programs conducted in collaboration with the Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE) and Association for the Study of Medical Education (ASME).

The Asia Pacific Medical Education Conference has grown and strengthened over the years. It is now in its 12th year attracting participants, not only from the Asia-Pacific region, but also from around the globe. For our 11th APMEC 2014, we had more than 830 medical and healthcare professionals from over 34 countries. We hope to see an even stronger participation in 2015. As with previous APMECs, we have invited distinguished medical and healthcare professional educators to share their experiences, expertise and wisdom at the 2015 conference.

On behalf of the Organising Committee, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to join us at our 12th APMEC and 3rd ICFDHP 2015, and to submit abstract/s for the Conference.

I look forward to your participation and to welcoming you to Singapore in February 2015.

With best wishes,

Dujeepa
