I am writing to let you know about the second educational conference of the European Academy of Teachers in General Practice [EURACT] which is being held in Leuven, Belgium 21st-22nd September 2018. This conference is being jointly hosted by the Academic Department of Family Medicine of the Katholieke Universiteit and EURACT in the beautiful medieval city of Leuven. Leuven is easily accessible from the Eurostar terminal in Brussels and Brussels airport. The conference will provide an opportunity for practicing family medicine teachers and researchers to meet and exchange research findings and new ideas in order to continue the development of Family Medicine Education in Europe.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 10th April 2018. We are looking for proposals on topics relevant to the teaching of General Practice at both postgraduate and undergraduate level. The themes can be found under abstract submission at the conference website.

This will be an opportunity for GP Teachers and researchers to meet and exchange ideas on how best to prepare the future GP workforce. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.

With best wishes
