Dear students worldwide,

It is our pleasure to invite you to become part of the AMEE Student Task Force 2020 !

AMEE is one of the most important organisations for medical and other health professions’ Education in the world. It promotes international excellence in education in the healthcare professions across the continuum of undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing education. Every year, AMEE organizes the largest medical education conference in the world: the AMEE Conference! In the last years, more than 3,500 participants attended the AMEE Conferences, with workshops, lectures, poster presentations, short communications, exhibitions, etc.

This year, AMEE offers around 45 international healthcare students the chance to attend the Conference for free, with financial support for travel and accommodation expenses. In exchange for that those students are asked to assist in basic tasks, related to helping out with practical issues and assisting participants during the conference.

WHEN/WHERE?

5 – 9 September 2020 – Glasgow, Scotland, UK // SEC Congress Centre

(Please note that the first working day of the Student Task Force will be September 4, therefore arrival day will be September 3 and departure day September 9)

SELECTION CRITERIA

All applications will be judged by the Coordinators team. Selections will be made based on:

More information on the selection criteria and what makes a good application can be found through this link.

NB: Students studying in any country, except the United Kingdom can apply – we will try to have students from different regions of the world. However, bear in mind that AMEE will only be able to support you with between 300 – 800 euros for your accommodation and travel expenses (fair share depending on travel costs). Students from the United Kingdom are warmly invited to apply for the local Student Task Force for which the call will be shared soon!

We will take in account the equilibrium between students that already have experience in the Student Task Force and newcomers to this task. Students in any healthcare profession are warmly welcomed to apply.
