Wednesday 26 January 2022, 08:30 to 12:30 GMT
Before every VdGM forum runs a pre-forum exchange, during which VdGM members can experience family medicine in the local context of the host country. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the exchange will be a virtual event and take place via Zoom on Wednesday 26 January 2022, from 08:30 to 12:30 GMT.
Registration is FREE and open to all VdGM members,
even if you cannot attend the face to face forum.
The virtual exchange is an opportunity to learn about family medicine in Scotland, meet and share experiences with colleagues from across Europe. The exchange will visit a rural island practice, a deprived inner-city practice in Glasgow and a typical practice in Edinburgh. There will be break out rooms for discussion, and also a session comparing primary care systems across Europe.
