International medical education event “The Muster”
October 15, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - October 18, 2018 @ 1:00 pm
Flinders University and the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) are pleased to bring you The Global Community Engaged Medical Education Muster Conference (The Muster) in Mount Gambier this October.
The Muster is the sixth in a series of biannual conferences that bring together an international audience to explore and discuss community engaged medical education and research, Aboriginal health, longitudinal learning and social accountability in healthcare training. We are also pleased to be hosting the CLIC (Consortium of Integrated Clerkships) Conference as part of The Muster 2018. We are proud to partner with the Federation of Australian Medical Educators (FRAME), University of Wollongong, CLIC, James Cook University and THEnet (Training for Health Equity Network), and value their input to this conference.
Hosting between 200 and 300 delegates, this conference will be of interest to educators, researchers, students and healthcare practitioners.
In the spirit of putting the community in the driving seat, the conference is set to be held in the heart of Mount Gambier utilising many of the city’s central facilities and local businesses. This immersion will provide plenty of opportunity for delegates to engage with and experience the local community.
This year The Muster strives to explore how community engaged medical education can empower communities to improve their health and patient care through the themes of: People and Communities; Integrated Training; Culture and Wellbeing and Rural Workforce. A wide variety of educational formats are on offer including posters, PeArLs, podium presentations and plenaries.
