VI Balearic Meeting of European Residents and Young GPs of Ibamfic
Thinking outside the Box
It is a great honor for us to invite you to the VI Balearic Meeting of European Residents and Young GPs of the Ibamfic (Balearic Society of Family and Community Medicine), which will be held in Palma de Mallorca on September 14th and 15th of 2018.
In this sixth edition, we want to offer a change and a new perspective. We will try to "Think outside the box" and explore the possibility we have to improve health in our patients, in our community and in ourselves. Sometimes we get great ideas when we change our point of view and approach the problem in a different way.
The sessions will be taught mostly by GP experts in each one of the subjects and the official language of the Meeting will be English (Easy English format).
One more time, assistants will be able to increase their participation in the event by sending scientific works (research, professional experiences, clinical cases...). The best oral communication will be awarded with 1 inscription to the 24th WONCA Europe Conference (Bratislava, May 2019) and the second with 1 inscription to the 6th VdGM Forum (Torino, September 2019), respectively.
The Meeting has been organized without the participation of the pharmaceutical industry, with a low cost format, to promote the assistance of young doctors.
For the occasion, we are also organizing our traditional Conference Exchange, inviting residents and young doctors from all Europe, who will enjoy a rotation week in a GP practice in Palma de Mallorca, thanks to the collaboration of the Vasco Da Gama Movement.
We are working with great enthusiasm so that you can enjoy a unique and unforgettable experience so the Balearic Society of Family and Community Medicine and Vasco da Gama Movement encourage you to participate in this Meeting & Conference Exchange; you will not be disappointed!!!
