AFMS-AMFB Annual Conference

The Society has one 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 and 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.

Please contact us if you wish to present at Conference.  We are calling now for presentations for the 2019 meetings – please see the Presentation page for more information.

Information on previous annual meetings can be accessed via the links in the sidebar.  Also don’t forget to visit the Photo Galleries.
