Welcome Message

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my great honor and pleasure to invite you to the 22nd WONCA World Conference of Family Doctors (WONCA 2018), which will be held in Seoul, Korea from October 17 to 21, 2018. The Korean Academy of Family Medicine will have the privilege of hosting WONCA 2018 in Korea, and plans to go to great lengths to ensure the conference surpasses all expectations.

The theme of the conference is “Primary Care in the Future: Professional Excellence," and will cover diverse disciplines of family medicine from the present to the future. For the vision of future family medicine, we plan to offer a dynamic and stimulating array of scientific and practical hands-on programs as well as special events.

At WONCA 2018, academia and industry will gather in force to not only show their best, but to share valuable ideas and develop new friendships. WONCA 2018 will provide all participants a firm platform for a meaningful academic, industrial, social and cultural experience. With fascinating ancient traditions and ultramodern lifestyle, the city of Seoul will surely be the center of many unforgettable moments for you.
