2017 Oxford Colloquium - Registration Now Open

This engaging but relaxed meeting is now in its ninth year. It will include a mixture of plenary sessions, interactive sessions and debates. It aims to bring together medical educators for discussion of both practical and theoretical aspects of medical training.

Feedback from our last Colloquium:

"A superb selection of high quality presentations... thought provoking and interesting."


This year we are delighted to announce the following among our confirmed speakers:

You can now view our programme here.


You can register online now for the Colloquium here at Eventbrite.

Registration costs £150 including lunch and dinner in Corpus Christi College. This year, for those unable to come to the dinner due to other commitments, we also have a limited number of places for the day only at £110.

OUMEF members should contact Angus McKnight to book a place rather than booking online.


A limited number of bursaries are available to trainee doctors working within the HEE Thames Valley area. These are funded by OUCAGS. They cover the whole cost of the conference (but not expenses) including the dinner, attendance at which is expected. Presenters of abstracts will be prioritised for these funded places. If you would like to apply please do not register for the conference online as the places are funded directly rather than reimbursed.

If you are submitting an abstract and wish to apply for a bursary please tick the appropriate box on the online form. If you are not submitting an abstract please email Angus McKnight including your contact details, place of work at the time of the conference, specialty and year of training, and current involvement in medical education.


We invite trainee doctors to submit an abstract for the event. All accepted abstracts will be as oral presentations (around 10 minutes in length - exact timings to be confirmed). The closing date for abstracts will be 14th July 2017.

There is no fixed format for abstract submission, but they should be no longer than 300 words in length and must be relevant to medical education and to this year's theme of 'Education: Benefit or Burden'.

Abstract submission has now closed.


Corpus Christi College is an ancient and beautiful college situated right in the heart of Oxford. Colloquium attendees will have the opportunity to meet and discuss medical education in this tranquil and attractive setting, as well as dining in the Tudor College Hall.
