Further information

In person: the conference will be held at the University of Edinburgh. The room will be confirmed shortly but it will be on the Central Campus within the Old Medical School (Teviot Place). Accommodation in Edinburgh in the summer is expensive and it is a busy time in the city so we suggest booking sooner rather than later. For those attending AMEE, we recommend staying in Glasgow and travelling to Edinburgh - we have arranged the times of the conference to allow for this. 

Online: a joining link will be sent nearer the time.
