The AMEE-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 RESME Course provides an introduction to the essential principles and methods of conducting research in medical education: formulating research questions, choosing a research approach and selecting an appropriate global methodology, and constructing a research plan. Through a series of short presentations and small group work, this highly interactive course will introduce basic concepts and principles using a variety of examples related to theory. After completing the course, participants will have acquired a framework for understanding and application of essential concepts and principles for research in medical education.
 
Content: The basic concepts and principles of medical education research will be introduced, using examples related to the theory. Each participant will construct his/her own personal learning plan and organise personal activities during the conference. Participants will work on in-conference assignments using the conference presentations to reinforce learning and basic concepts, and to apply basic principles. After the course participants will be able to (1) formulate a research question; (2) select an appropriate global methodology; (3) operationalize the research question into a research plan; and (4) write a research proposal.
 
Post-course research proposal:
Participants may choose to submit, within six months of completion of the course, a short research proposal on a topic of their own interest describing the application of the concepts and principles covered in the RESME Course, leading to award of the AMEE-RESME Certificate in Medical Education. The course curriculum covers 2 ECTS points for the workshops and AMEE conference sessions and an additional 4 ECTS points for the individual research proposal.
