The programme in brief:

The focus of the Rogano meeting is to promote the development of PhD students and postdoctoral researchers within a climate of high-level, international, scholarly debate.

The broad objectives of Rogano are:

  • Expanding the international network of fellow researchers in medical education
  • Considering dilemmas regarding your own research
  • Entering into scientific discussions to gain knowledge and ideas to inform your own research

The backbone of the conference is the PhD sessions. All PhD students will – in due time before the conference – be requested to submit a research dilemma to the organising committee to be presented and discussed at the conference.

The aim of these sessions is for delegates to facilitate the development of PhD students and postdoctoral researchers. Students will present their research topic and conclude with a query or dilemma connected with their research; then through high-level, scholarly, but supportive discussion, delegates will help the student to think about possible solutions.

Each presenter has 30 minutes “on the floor”. The sessions should not be used for presenting research results but to briefly present your research topic (10 minutes). At the end of your brief presentation, you will present the audience with your specific queries or dilemmas, and ask them to consider and discuss these queries/dilemmas for the remainder of your time (20 minutes). Each group will have a facilitator whose role involves managing time and the flow of discussion.

In addition to these sessions, the meeting will contain three plenary sessions. These sessions will include topics such as how to get published, how to supervise, and methodological issues.

About the conference


The idea for the first ‘Rogano’ meeting was born in 2010 when Tim Dornan, Cees van der Vleuten and Jeroen van Merrenboer (Maastricht University) discussed how to continue and build on the international relationships with other universities.

At that year’s AMEE conference in Glasgow a table was booked at Glasgow’s famous Rogano restaurant with colleagues from the UK, the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Canada to discuss the possibility of organising an international collaboration between medical education research groups. The idea of having a meeting together linked to the AMEE conference came forward, and the first Rogano Meeting was organised by the Maastricht team in Vienna in 2011.

The focus of the meeting is to promote the development of PhD students and postdoctoral researchers within a climate of high-level, international, scholarly debate.
