Welcome to the AFMS!

Winter Meetings

We hold our annual winter meeting each year in Chamonix.

The dates for 2023 are 26th January until 29th January 2023.

This picturesque location offers a packed and interesting scientific programme just a few minutes from the ski slopes. This is a popular meeting among members and is always a highlight of the winter season. Check out our Meetings page for further info and information on how to book a place.

Annual Conference

The Society has one main meeting annually which is held jointly with the Association Médicale Franco-Britannique.

These meetings take place towards the end of September and alternate between France and the UK.

The annual conference is always held in an area of cultural and gastronomic interest. This allows for a full and fun social programme to complement our scientific programme which usually features local speakers from the area of interest.

Our next meeting will be in Orléans, France from 18th – 21st September 2024.
