The ESME courses, offered and accredited by AMEE, are aimed at practising teachers in medicine and the healthcare professions, both basic scientists and clinicians. They are aimed at those new to teaching and at 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, with appropriate help, all, even those with considerable experience, can improve their skills in teaching.

Purpose: The ESME Course provides an introduction to the basic competencies required of the medical and healthcare professions teacher: the Skilled Educational Planner, the Effective Teacher and the Informed Assessor/Evaluator. Through a series of short presentations and small group work, this highly interactive course looks at how people learn and the range of teaching, learning and assessment methods and opportunities available to the teacher. It also examines how teaching, learning and assessment can be organized in the curriculum.

Content: The ESME Course provides an introduction to the basic competencies required of the medical and healthcare professions teacher: the Skilled Educational Planner, the Effective Teacher and the Informed Assessor/Evaluator. Through a series of short presentations and small group work, this highly interactive course looks at how people learn and the range of teaching, learning and assessment methods and opportunities available to the teacher. It also examines how the teaching, learning and assessment can be organised in the curriculum. After completing the course, participants will have acquired a vocabulary and a framework for understanding essential concepts in these three areas and familiarity with the principles for their practical implementation.

Post-course report: Participants may choose to submit, within six months of completion of the course, a short report describing the application of the ESME competencies in their own teaching practice, leading to award of the AMEE-ESME Certificate in Medical Education.

Facilitators: Stewart Mennin (Mennin Consulting, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA) and Ruy Souza (Federal University of Roraima, Brazil), Regina Petroni Mennin (Federal University of Sao Paulo, Brazil)
