Dear Colleagues,

The Organising Committee of APMEC 2019 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 Asia Pacific Medical Education Conference (APMEC) 2019 from 9 to 13 January 2019 in Singapore.

We have specially chosen our theme "Education for Health – 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 16th year attracting participants, not only from the Asia-Pacific region, but also from around the globe. For our 15th APMEC 2018, we had close to 1,300 medical and healthcare professionals from over 31 countries. We hope to see an even stronger participation in 2019. .

As with previous APMECs, we have invited distinguished medical and healthcare professional educators to share their experiences, expertise and wisdom. APMEC 2019 will be centred around several themes anchoring undergraduate, residency to Continuous Professional Development in Medical, Nursing and Allied Health Professions.

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 APMEC 2019 in January.

With best wishes
