Programme - Educational Congress 2018

Programme for Karolinska Institutet's Educational Congress 2018.

This year the congress has been extended to two days to allow participants the opportunity to delve deeper into topics of interest. As a part of the congress we are also organizing the KIPRIME Symposium. This means that some of the sessions are hosted by The Gunnar Höglund and Anna Stina Malmborg foundation, Karolinska Institutet's Prize in Medical Education Research (KIPRIME).  The first day will offer presentations on both medical education research, local as well as global, and internationalisation of the curriculum. Together with invited experts we will discuss and explore future challenges and possibilities. 

Day two will be dedicated to the topic of internationalisation where, together with invited experts, we will explore and work with different aspects.
