Educating Student Osteopaths: Academic and Clinical Learning and assessment

The University College of Osteopathy is hosting its biannual International Education Conference on Saturday 7 December 2019.

The conference will be an opportunity for educators and osteopaths from around the world of osteopathy and related disciplines (chiropractic, physiotherapy, dietetics and nutrition) to meet, exchange practice and to learn from each other.

We welcome the submission of abstracts from colleagues for workshops and platform presentations on topics related to practical and theoretical education of student in healthcare. Responding to student needs is at the heart of education and we welcome submissions and attendance from students.

The conference aims to share information about innovative curriculum developments, and findings from research studies into different educational delivery processes and their effects on student learning outcomes.

Keynote lectures, platform presentations, posters and workshops will address important questions about our current position and future directions.
