The constant development of medical and veterinary education was always crucial, but in the last decade it has moved more in focus. Numerous highly ranked journals and conferences specialize on this topic. One of them is an international educational conference, the Graz Conference (GraCo). This event took place first in 1995 in Graz, Austria and the name of conference comes from this as well ( The idea of the conference was initiated by three medical doctors, who realized the importance of the improvement and modernization of the medical teaching. In the first 10 years the conference was organized in Graz, later it was rotated between other Austrian cities in German. In 2012 the organizers decided to choose a foreign city for the event, Timisoara (Romania), and the official language of the conference became English with a half-day German program. The University of Veterinary Medicine, Budapest (UVMB) participated first in 2016, in Vienna. As part of the EU project WatchMe ( we presented the results of the consortium on a poster. From this year on, the conference housed not only medical, but also veterinary topics. Our university participated on every Graz Conference from 2016 with either lecture, workshop, poster or being mediator/participant in panel discussions. The Graz Conference, European Conference on Veterinary and Medical Education (ECVME) is a well known yearly event organized every year during the week after Easter. This 3-day-long conference is very popular among the teachers working in educational research. The conference has every year it’s topic and the lecturers are worldwide recognized experts of the given field who usually also hold a workshop for the participants. This conference, which developed from the Austrian event is more and more international these days attracting researchers from all over Europe and other parts of the world. The demand for modernization of medical and veterinary education is important for students as later employees, for the employers and the society. To keep the education up-to-date and improve we need to educate the teachers as well. They need new, modern methods to help the new generation of medical doctors (MDs) and veterinarians (doctor of veterinary medicine, DVMs) grow into practitioners with appropriate skills, knowledge and attitude.
