International Virtual Medical Conference to help medics share and collaborate
MedAll launches an innovative International Virtual Medical Conference to help medics share and collaborate on important research during lockdown.

In the current Covid-19 environment, now more than ever, healthcare professionals need to be collaborating and sharing their research findings. 

Typically medics present, discuss and debate their latest findings at Conferences. However, in the current environment that has become impossible: global lockdown restrictions, social distancing, busier clinical rotas and the need to work more flexibly face-to-face has stalled research dissemination. Conferences have been cancelled or at least significantly postponed and medics have lost the valuable opportunity to collaborate, share and discuss their latest research.

This is where the Northern Irish medtech team at MedAll have stepped up to the mark. They have partnered with a passionate team of international medicsto launch an innovative International Virtual Medical Conference, that will take place completely online on Saturday 23rd May.

Speakers include world leaders in healthcare innovation and humanitarian medicine.

MedAll are building a community of medics to make global healthcare training and research better and more equitable. Led by Dr Phil MedAllMcElnay, a medical doctor by training, he explained:

“We are a community of healthcare professionals on a mission to improve healthcare training and research. We make it possible for low, middle (and high) income countries to implement “e-portfolio” technology for their medics that they may otherwise not have the resources to implement. It helps their healthcare professionals to learn at the highest possible standard and ensures equitable, bench-marked care is provided to patients around the world.

Organising an international event like this sits perfectly with our ethos. It seemed like the right thing to do to restore the opportunity to our wonderful medics to present the research they work so hard to produce. We just had to think outside the box of how we make that happen. It means that we can all continue to collaborate and improve patient care.”

The event will be a virtual take on a traditional medical conference with virtual “main hall” sessions featuring keynotes and MedAll fireside conversations with world leading healthcare professionals and innovators. The day also includes innovative interactive workshops on a full range of career building and research topics.

Perhaps one of the most innovative additions that makes this event unique and exciting, however, is the fact that the team will be running virtual break-out rooms in every medical specialty, allowing medical researchers at all stages of their career to present their work to their peers, discuss their findings and debate how they can implement best practice for their patients.

Delegates are signing up from across the world, with abstract submissions already received in most medical specialities. The innovative structure means that hundreds of medics will be able to present their research to the medical community, with concurrent streams in every medical specialty.

The event is completely online on Saturday 23rd May. Abstracts can be submitted and full details can be found at More details on the event will be announced over the coming weeks and you can keep track of updates on the team’s website or on MedAll’s social feeds: @MedAllApp
