2010 Annual Conference

Asilomar Conference Center, Pacific Grove, CA
Host: University of California, Davis
Theme: Health and Interprofessional Education for the Underserved: Model Programs and Innovations
The WGEA educational community joined together this spring at Asilomar to share model programs, curricular innovations and lessons learned as we strive for excellence in education and medical care. The pre-conference program included workshops, meetings of special interest groups, and a special panel on PRIME programs. The conference program featured excellent plenary speakers, a special GME focus session on Patient Safety, Quality Improvement and Education, workshops, panels, oral presentations, and poster sessions.
We hope you will join us for next year’s combined WGEA/WGSA meeting hosted by Stanford University in Palo Alto, California.
