In 2010, over a dinner in Glasgow, UK, colleagues from The Netherlands, Denmark, Finland and Canada discussed how best to develop an international collaboration between medical education research groups. The idea of having an annual meeting running adjacent to the AMEE conference was proposed and the Rogano Meeting was born.
The main focus of Rogano is the development of PhD students and postdoctoral researchers within a climate of high-level, international, scholarly debate.
The objectives of Rogano are
- Expanding the international network of fellow researchers in medical education
- Considering dilemmas regarding your own research
- Entering into vibrant scientific discussion, to gain knowledge and ideas to inform your own research
This year’s meeting is in Helsinki, Finland, 31st of August and 1st of September 2017, in the Faculty of Medicine, Meilahti Campus at the University of Helsinki. The venue for the meeting is the Faculty of Medicine, Meilahti Campus of the University of Helsinki, Biomedicum 1, Haartmaninkatu 8. You will get there from the city center by taking the tram number 4, buss number 14 or 18 (see the map on the bottom of the page).
