The Challenges of Medical Education in the Era of Complexity

On this occasion, on behalf of the Organizing Committee, I would like to express my warmest welcome to the VI International Congress of Medical Education and the V International Congress of Medical Simulation, The Challenges of Medical Education in the Era of Complexity, the two Most important events in Latin America of Academic Medicine.

Throughout 12 years, these academic exchanges have allowed us to enrich the collection of experiences in various fields of knowledge; following the model established by the Mexican Association of Faculties and Schools of Medicine. On this occasion, we will enjoy eleven Master Lectures given by the most outstanding exponents of medical education; later on we will be able to enjoy specific Conferences given by academic peers who will present us with their particular perspectives in the main topics of their field of competence; in this edition 2018, the modalities of Panels and Forums are combined, integrated as Discussion and Analysis Tables, in these, you will be able to interact with academic actors from different latitudes, providing the opportunity to exchange ideas and perspectives.

Information and simulation technologies have played a central role in medical education throughout last decade. Therefore, the V International Congress of Medical Simulation is carried out simultaneously; through various activities, the participants will have the opportunity to receive an update on the main themes of the advances, tools and techniques.

On the other hand, participants are given the opportunity to meet and interact directly with various specialists in each of the subjects of knowledge, through Oral Presentations and Posters.

Under this framework, from June 12 to 16, 2018, we are certain that the range of academic and cultural activities will meet the professional and personal expectations of the selected national and international attendees.

We wait for you with open arms in Mazatlán, Sinaloa.
