What will be covered?
The journey to becoming and being a 'health professions' educator' is not always smooth. Belonging to a community of practice and mentoring can facilitate individuals’ professional development and educator identity. An inclusive community is essential for successful global collaborations, where members can share best practices, challenges, and successes, and contribute to each other’s professional identity formation and professional growth. In this interactive session, the AMEE President and other organizational leaders will share personal reflections on the benefits of belonging to this community, propose new ideas and initiatives and suggest concrete strategies to engage and participate in AMEE activities.
