BRISSON, María Eugenia  y  GALLI, Amanda. Argentinean Medical Education Annual Conference: agenda, contributions and emerging issues. Educ. méd. [online]. 2005, vol.8, n.1, pp.38-47. ISSN 1575-1813.

Purpose: To study the themes explored at the Argentinian Medical Education Conferences (CAEMS) in the past twenty years, identifying those currently under debate and those that are likely to emerge in the new future; to explore their relationship with health care developments worldwide over the last twenty years. Method and materials: A descriptive study performed between 1985 and 2003, analysing CAEM conferences, summits and programs, information from web sites; official, technical and institutional documents. In addition, key informants were also interviewed. Results: Current issues are: admission; evaluation and accreditation; curricular change; faculty selection, training and promotion; graduate quality. Emerging topics: key themes on the international agenda are making their mark in this country. Relations with the worldwide context: foundation of non-profit associations to develop medical education, participation in international conferences and summits; implementation of projects to conduct research, to strengthen or develop postgraduate capacity in medical education and to establish new legislation in higher education. Conclusion: There is a two-way exchange of information between Latin America and the rest of the world in medical education. Medical education has evolved in Argentina in recent years. The CAEM provides a forum for discussion and dissemination of topical subjects, either general or domestic. In general, though the discussion is based more on opinion than on evidence, the quality of papers and communications has improved.
