Dear Colleagues,

The Organising Committee of APMEC 2016 and the Centre for Medical Education Unit (CenMED), Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore, National University Health System, cordially invite you to attend the 13th Asia Pacific Medical Education Conference (APMEC) from 13th to 17th January 2016 at the National University of Singapore, Singapore.

We have specially chosen our theme as "Education to Healthcare: Contextualising Learning into 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.

The Asia Pacific Medical Education Conference has grown and strengthened over the years. It is now in its 13th year attracting participants, not only from the Asia-Pacific region, but also from around the globe. For our 12th APMEC 2015, we had more than 1,100 medical and healthcare professionals from over 46 countries. We hope to see an even stronger participation in 2016. As with previous APMECs, we have invited distinguished medical and healthcare professional educators to share their experiences, expertise and wisdom at the 2016 conference.

On behalf of the Organising Committee, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to join us at our 13th APMEC 2016, and to submit abstract/s for the Conference.

I look forward to your participation and to welcoming you to Singapore in January 2016.

With best wishes
