VdGM asks National Colleges of European Countries to send 1–2 delegates to the Preconference. Every year a «new» delegate has the opportunity to get an interesting introduction to the idea of being a GP in a European context and can exchange ideas, experiences and visions. Discussions with fellow trainees or young GPs from all over Europe will widen perspectives and horizons, in keeping with the mission statement of VdGM:
Our mission is to extend our knowledge of GP/FM in a European perspective and to exchange ideas and experiences with the purpose to develop and improve GP/FM in Europe and at home.
Preconference participants will also have the chance to get acquainted with the activities of VdGM and to attend the yearly Wonca Europe Conference. The aim is to stimulate young GPs’ enthusiasm in maintaining the goals of a high quality family medicine in their countries as well as throughout Europe, working along the following lines «think globally, act locally».
