Why attend ICRE

In addition to enhancing your knowledge as it relates to residency education, ICRE is an exciting medical education (MedEd) conference that provides an excellent platform to meet the brightest minds in MedEd. Here  are testimonials from some of ICRE attendees.

Dr. Andria Tatem, Baylor College of Medicine, United States of America

“I came to ICRE because it is an event that is focused on residency education. It provides an opportunity to meet like-minded people. I connected with many people during the networking reception, plenaries, workshops and during the resident survival panel, and I’m still in touch with them.”

Dr. Shuaib Quraishi, Royal College of Physicians, United Kingdom

“I wanted to engage and learn from medical education experts with a similar vision and drive to improve medical education.”

Dr. Kelly Caverzagie, University of Nebraska Medical Center, United States of America

“ICRE tackles the “big” topics in medical education. The problems that confront us as a global community. At ICRE, I am able to learn from friends and colleagues worldwide who are working on these issues and I learn new ways to address these problems at my own institution.
