Past, Present and Future Assessment in Medical Education


Welcome to the EBMA Virtual Conference 2020 

Hello and welcome to our EBMA virtual and sequential conference. We have arranged this over several months so that people with busy commitments can put aside a small amount of time once a month to hear the fascinating work that our colleagues have been doing in several different areas of assessment. It promises to be a great programme that you will be able to enjoy in bite size chunks. Looking forward to virtually seeing you!
