The V Balearic Meeting of European Residents and Young GPs – September 2017 Jonathan McFarland, Head of the Academic Writing Office was asked by the Head of the Organising Committee for the V Balearic Meeting of European Residents and Young GPs, Dr Enrique Alvarez, to give an oral presentation about Medical Humanities. Jonathan decided to speak about “Why Humanism is important in 21st Century Medicine” Thisis the fifth edition of this very popular conference dedicated to residents and young general practitioners from Europe and around the world, and, although Jonathan had participated previously this was the first time that he had been asked to give an oral presentation. This year’s theme was also intriguing, as noted in the programme”In this fifth edition, we want to pay homage to all Family Doctors, who could certainly inspire an exciting script for Hollywood. To do this, we will support the seventh art to demonstrate that Family Medicine is a Cinema Specialty”. So, Jonathan decided to take the 1991 William Hurt film, The Doctor, as the theme for his talk. His talk was very well received and Dr Alavarez in a later mail to Jonathan even went as far as to say the following: “THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH for your help, and for your amazing session. I really think it was the most special session we have offered in our 5 editions so... THANKS JONATHAN.” So, all the effort was worth it. This annual conference would be a great one for General Practitioners from Sechenov to attend, so we must inform them about it.

Head of Academic Writing Office,
