Enlarge your conference with one day

The EBMA Conference this year takes place prior to the yearly NVMO Conference, the Netherlands Association for Medical Education, at Egmond aan Zee. This gives the opportunity to lengthen your stay and learn more about medical education, assessment and faculty development, of course a fully English track. Attending the EBMA Conference gives a discount on visiting the NVMO Conference on Thursday. For more information and registration: Program NVMO and General info NVMO

We’re still working on making the best program as possible. Names of speakers will be added during the coming months and minor changes to the program can be made.
