VII Balearic Meeting of European Residents and Young GPs of Ibamfic

Better Together


It is a great honor for us to invite you to the VII 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 6th and 7th of 2019.


In this seventh edition, we want to share our perspective about TEAMWORK.

After “thinking outside the box” we will show how to improve health in our patients, in our community and in ourselves working all together. Cause is “Better Together”!

Individuals possess diverse talents, weaknesses, strengths and habits, while teamwork structures provide a diversity of thought, creativity, perspectives, opportunities, and problem-solving approaches.

With the teamwork we can motivate the whole primary care team to work toward the same goal in harmony: healthier patients and healthier doctors.

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 25th WONCA Europe Conference (Berlin, 24th-27th June 2020). We received great feedbacks last year and we will introduce some suggested changes in this Balearic Meeting.

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 experienc. 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!!!

Keynote Speaker


Adrián Castellote Tena (Zaragoza, 1984)

Family Doctor in the Antarctica

Adrián always tried to combine medicine and travels, his two main passions, as you see in the picture, in the best way he could.

He always cared about his patients in their own environment and ended up working as a rural doctor in a remote village in La Gomera (Canarias), a small island.

He is curious about visiting every new place, with a special interest in remote and inaccesible areas.

Some moths ago, when he was offered to sail along Antartica in a 118 years old tall ship as the ship's doctor of the expedition, he just couldn't say no.

You may also submit contributions on research projects (even in the absence of the final results), experiences relevant to Family Medicine and Critical Incidents from your GP Residence and/or in your experience as Young GP.

An author can figure in a maximum of 6 abstracts.



You have the opportunity to present an original report or research project. You can also present the protocol of some Project pending to perform (in which case the results and conclusions may be absent). The abstract will be structured in the following sections:

· Introduction: Explain why you did the study or provide the background for the paper.

main study variables, data collection instruments and procedures and outline analysis methods.

· Conclusions: You can state inferences or speculations and offer perspectives for future work.





This group of communications offers you the chance of presenting those events occurred during your clinical practice whose outcome has surprised you, troubled you or induced an self-reflexion.

The abstract will include a maximum of 350 words and will be structured in the following sections:

· Case presentation: environment, relevant background, actual complaints and relevant information from interview
