On 18 March, the Federation of European Academies of Medicine (FEAM), with support of the Portuguese Academy of Medicine, will organise a digital conference focused on the future of the medical profession, from the training of young professionals to the challenges on the integration of academic medicine in medical practice.
The advancement of digital technologies has contributed greatly in the medical field, but has also posed challenges. If we look at education, few medical courses in Europe changed their curriculum in recent years.
In this conference focused on medical training, Professor Fausto Pinto (Portuguese Academy of Medicine) will look at “the facing change of medicine in the next 10 years”, while Professor Stefan Constantinescu (Royal Academy of Medicine of Belgium and Romanian Academy of Medical Sciences) will dive in into the topic of “the integration of academic medicine in medical practice”.
Looking to a long-term future, we will have an open discussion on “What kind of doctor do we want for the future?” with professors and students from around Europe.
