Accreditation

For the the MME workshop 2025, we will again seek the accreditation by the Swiss Institute for Postgraduate and Further Education in Medicine (SIWF / ISFM). Participants will receive a certificate and can check with their national institutions if the credit points are accepted by them.


Participation & registration

Please be aware that places at the workshop are limited as we want to keep the format of the workshop as close as possible to the previous years, which includes time and opportunity for discussions. These are only possible in a smaller group and we can therefore not accomodate more than 50/60 people in total (including the speakers and faculty members). Participants will be selected with the aim of putting together a well-balanced group of speakers and participants to allow for productive discussions.

Participation is possible on-site in Jongny (~ 30 persons in total) and online via zoom videoconference.

  • Registration will open in late 2024/ early 2025.
