In 2018 IAMSE supported the foundation of the Asia-Pacific Biomedical Science Educators Association (APBSEA), a network of enthusiastic basic science educators from several countries in the Asia-Pacific region coming together to share experiences and issues pertaining to health professions education and beyond. Both organizations are pleased to announce the first-ever Biomedical Science (BMS) Track at the 2019 Asia Pacific Medical Education Conference in Singapore. The track consists of 3 main activities:
- Pre-conference Workshop on “Developing Fair and Holistic Approaches to Evaluate Biomedical Science Educators”
- Panel Discussion on “Supporting Biomedical Science Educators: A Matter of Self-Esteem, Identity and Promotion Opportunities”
- Symposium on “Integration of Biomedical Science and Clinical Education: How to Make it Work?”
A big thanks to the APBSEA and IAMSE members for actively contributing to these sessions and making them possible. If you are interested in attending the APMEC meeting, please visit the conference website.
