AMEE Essential Skills in Medical Education (ESME) courses

ESME courses are designed for those new to teaching, and for teachers with some experience who would like a greater understanding of the basic principles and an update on current best practice. The courses recognise that all teachers, even those with considerable experience, can improve their skills in teaching.

The course runs across 12 weeks and is made up of webinars, reading and discussion boards with participants. It is a great introduction to medical education and participants who complete course assignments receive an AMEE-ESME Certificate in Medical Education in the areas addressed by the course.

Download the AMEE-ESME Course Brochure for more information and visit the AMEE website to register.
