The theme of the Conference is Planning & Educating a Health Workforce without Borders, and the prime goal is to create a platform for networking and dialogue. 

Several speakers will discuss the challenge of the mobility of health professionals, but will also tackle the topic of studying abroad. Several country cases will shed light on various model situations.

Considering the increase of life expectancy, international speakers will put in perspective the effect of a changing demography on health workforce needs and the subsequent adaptations.
