Dear Colleagues,

The Organising Committee of APMEC 2018 and the Centre for Medical Education (CenMED), Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore, National University Health System, invite you to attend the 15th Asia Pacific Medical Education Conference (APMEC) from 10 to 14 January 2018 in Singapore.

We have specially chosen our theme "Technology: Enhancing Education for Improvement of Patient Care – 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. This is also an opportunity for participants to stimulate discussions in medical and health professional education with the experts.

The Asia Pacific Medical Education Conference has grown and strengthened over the years. It is now in its 15th year attracting participants, not only from the Asia-Pacific region, but also from around the globe. For our 14th APMEC 2017, we had close to 1,200 medical and healthcare professionals from over 33 countries. We hope to see an even stronger participation in 2018.

As with previous APMECs, we have invited distinguished medical and healthcare professional educators to share their experiences, expertise and wisdom.

On behalf of the Organising Committee, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to join us at our conference.

I look forward to your participation and to welcoming you to the 15th anniversary APMEC in January 2018.

With best wishes
