Event name[edit]

The 20th IAMSE conference on Medical Science Education.

Participant connections[edit]

Around 200 medical educators, clinicians and scientists attended the conference. The oral presentations part on Sunday Jun 5, 2016, had 8 tracks running simultaneously. The track I presented in was "Technology and Innovation". I was supposed to give a 10 minutes presentation with 5 minutes questions, but ended up talking for about 20 minutes. About 40 participants attended, most of which remained in when I finished to say thank you, that it was inspiring and ask further questions. One educator said she can't wait to try it our at her school. We exchanged emails so I can support her from afar or connect her with Wiki ED Foundation, as she is based in the US.
