Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham

And so back to Birmingham England, a quick change of venue from the planned country of the Netherlands, who sadly were unable to host on this occasion.

The 9th international gathering was held at the 200 years old Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham England. The conference opened with a pleasant late summers evening in the Board room, with a quartet of singers, the Chief Executive Mrs Jo Chambers welcomed delegates to the historic home of the Cadbury family, which is now the Trust headquarters.

The programme was again very busy with keynote speakers Dr Elizabeth Hughes from Health Education England, Professor Jim Parle Chairman of the UK and Ireland Board for Physician Associate Education and Dr Audrey Gibbs the newly appointed Programme Director at the University of East Anglia and outgoing Programme Director at the University of Witwatersrand  in South Africa.

The conference drew delegates from the UK, USA, Ghana, Zambia, and South Africa. The conference also saw a re-energising of the IAPAE Sub-committee structures, with nominated Chairs to lead them

The conference dinner was held at the lovely Beeches Conference Centre.
