A high quality online course for teachers in the healthcare professions
The AMEE Essential Skills in Medical Education Assessment (ESMEA) course is aimed at people involved with teaching in the health professions who have limited experience in assessment and who wish to gain an insight into practical applications. It is also relevant to others who already have an interest in assessment and wish to gain a foundation in the theoretical underpinnings.
After completing the course, participants will have acquired a vocabulary and a framework for understanding essential concepts in assessment and familiarity with the principles for their practical implementation.
The award of the AMEE-ESMEA Certificate in Medical Education provides evidence of the participant’s interest in education and skills related to medical education assessment.
The highly successful face-to-face ESMEA course has been offered since 2007 in relation to medical education conferences. The course will be offered online for the first time in 2017.
All that is needed to participate is access to a broadband internet connection.
