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.

Vision:  The ESMECPD Course will provide AMEE participants with a global appreciation of current Best Practices, evidence and theory informing effective Continuing Professional Development, and practical approaches for implementing CPD within different settings.

Target audience: This program should be of interest to those who are currently involved in the planning, organization and/or implementation of medical (health) education at the continuing professional development level.

Methods: An interactive workshop appropriate for beginners and those at an intermediary point in their CPD careers. 

Day 1: Saturday 5 September - 0830-1630 hrs For individuals entering a career in CPD or wanting to do a refresher course (includes coffee, lunch and materials).

Day 2: Sunday 6 September - 0830-1630 hrs - A more advanced program for individuals who have mastered the basic principles and want to learn more about current issues and future directions of CPD (includes coffee, lunch and materials). 

Day 1 & Day 2 can also be taken together as the full ESMECPD course. Delegates who attend the full ESMECPD course may choose to submit, within six months of completion of the masterclass, a short report describing the application of the ESMECPD competencies in their own CPD practice, leading to award of the AMEE-ESMECPD Certificate in Medical Education.
