International summits

The ICBME collaborators have organized three international summits on competency-based medical education in recent years:

  • In August 2018, a two-day world summit on competency-based medical education will be held in conjunction with the Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE). Registration and abstract submission information here.
  • In August 2016, a two-day world summit on competency-based education held in conjunction with the Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE) conference in Barcelona. The summit was attended by over 200 participants from around the world. The conference program and abstract book can be viewed here.
  • The second summit, in 2013, was a two-day invitational summit held in Calgary. Following the summit, participants agreed to collaborate on a second series of articles aimed at advancing CBME around the world. The second series of papers was published in Medical Teacher in June 2017 .
  • An international Cambridge-style summit on CBME was held in Ottawa in 2009. The next year, the international journal Medical Teacher dedicated its entire August edition to the work of the ICBME Collaborators, publishing a special themed issue on the scholarly work launched at the 2009 summit.
