By Kimberley Wang, Manager, Media and Publications, Communications and Outreach

The highly-anticipated international medical education conference, Transform MedEd, will take place on 11 and 12 November 2022. Organised by LKCMedicine and Imperial College School of Medicine, it brings together eminent speakers, educators, students and partners in an exciting mix of discussion and debate, showcasing innovative solutions to medical education.

Over two days, the conference will explore five main programme themes: evidence-based education, humanities and social sciences in medical education, technology-enhanced education, partnerships in medical education, and bright ideas in medical education. 

Highlights include a series of in-person keynote lectures, symposia, workshops, poster presentations, short communications, break out spaces, interactive short presentations and research salons.

The first ever Transform MedEd conference was held in November 2018 in Singapore and attracted almost 400 delegates from 15 countries. It hosted a keynote, four plenaries, four symposia, 10 workshops, and received over 100 abstracts. 

Originally slated for March 2020, the second conference was postponed due to travel restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. With the easing of COVID-19 regulations and the opening of international borders, Transform MedEd 2022 will be held in London, United Kingdom. 

In the meantime, LKCMedicine and Imperial College London hosted Digital Transform MedEd, a series of open-access online events​. The programme featured engaging talks, seminars and events with respected and influential figures discussing innovation, technology, collaboration and research related to medical education. It gives a sneak peek of the on-site Transform MedEd conference to be held in November. 

At the upcoming Transform MedEd 2022 in London, participants will have the opportunity to join an international community of medical educators for exciting discussions on the future evolution of global medical education. For more information, please visit the Transform MedEd website.
