AFMS-AMFB Annual Conference

The Society has a main meeting annually which is held jointly with the Association Médicale Franco-Britannique. These meetings take place over a long weekend,  normally at the end of September / start of October. The locations alternate between France and the UK.

The annual conference is always held in an area of cultural and gastronomic interest, allowing for a full and fun social programme as well as the scientific programme. Partners are welcomed at these events and a separate social programme is organised, during the scientific presentations, for these not medically minded.

Inverness Castle

The next AFMS conference is planned to take place in Inverness in October 2023. Inverness is the capital of the Scottish Highlands

The committee are currently hard at work putting together a fabulous scientific and social programme. We will publish more information online and in our newsletters in due course.

We are calling now for presentations for the 2023 annual meeting. If you would like to present, please contact us to submit your proposal. We encourage presentations in both English and French but we ask that slides be in the alternate language. For further guidance, contact us to discuss.
