International Congress of Health Workforce Education and Research

Future Education for Healthcare

We are very pleased to announce that the International Congress of Health Workforce Education and Research will take place in the magnificent grounds of Ordem dos Medicos in Porto, Portugal from Tuesday 27th June 2017 to Thursday 29th June 2017. Hosted in collaboration with both the University of Porto and Ordem dos Medicos, the International Network for Health Workforce Education holds its Congress once a year and it is the prime meeting place for international health workforce educators, researchers and policy makers.

Congress Theme

The Congress is specifically designed to meet the needs of all health professional educators while also facilitating multidisciplinary discourse by bringing together educators, policy makers, researchers and experts from across the globe. The event creates the perfect opportunity for active networking and knowledge sharing while also featuring a comprehensive program offering numerous presentations, technical sessions and workshops showcasing the latest innovations in health education.

During a time of great change for global healthcare systems the future education of healthcare professionals is key to ensuring long term sustainability for populations. International institutions have called for policies that allow for the education of flexible health professionals capable of dealing with the ever-changing healthcare environment.  A multi-stakeholder and inter-professional approach to tackling this issue is paramount to ensuring this takes place. Educators must ensure that they employ the most effective teaching methods, researchers must identify the right skill combinations for future professionals, and policy makers must make effective changes to national and international planning and legislation. 

The International Congress of Health Workforce Education and Research allows participants to discuss the diverse challenges of “Future Education in Healthcare” with international colleagues. The Congress would welcome presentations adopting local, national and/or international perspectives on:

  • Teaching/Training: pedagogy, assessment methods, curricula, innovation, technology
  • Research: results from large-scale surveys, research projects, studies using innovative methods
  • Policy: new policy initiatives, future policy directions being pursued by governments and private/non-governmental organisations.

A full description of the Congress theme can be found in the Call for Abstract document.
