From the CEO's desk: Young Doctors and Family Doctor Day
We really are blessed in WONCA. In each of our seven regions we now have a Young Doctors’ Movement (YDM), helping to support and encourage and develop the next generation of family doctors and WONCA leaders.
At two recent conferences – WONCA South Asia in Dhaka and WONCA Asia Pacific in Taipei – I’ve been privileged to take part in sessions run by the regional YDMs.
From the CEO's desk: Family Doctor Day and more
In this month’s WONCA News I want to report back on the Prince Mahidol Award Conference (PMAC) which is held each year in Bangkok. I also want to highlight World Family Doctor Day which, as ever, will be celebrated on 19th May.
From the CEO's desk: final 2014 message
The CEO has been in Rio checking on preparations for the world conference and council meeting being held in 2016. Dates for various associated meetings have been announced and he is clearly excited: "Rio really is a fantastic city, with many beaches right in the heart of the city. The conference itself is planned for Rio Centro, an excellent congress centre on a really lovely campus, close to what will become the Olympic village for the 2016 Olympics."
From the CEO's desk: awards, conferences, resources.
Hello again from Bangkok. This month I want to concentrate on WONCA awards, WONCA conferences and WONCA resources. Two sets of awards are currently available for WONCA members. The Montegut Scholarship awards provide support for one doctor from each of the seven WONCA regions to attend their regional conference annually. The Taiwan Family Medicine Research awards are available to three young researchers, to present their research at the Asia Pacific conference in Taipei next March.
