The AMEE-ESME courses and Masterclasses, offered and accredited by AMEE, are aimed at practising teachers in medicine and the healthcare professions, both basic scientists and clinicians.

AMEE-ESME courses are designed to be of value to those new to teaching, and for 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 all teachers, even those with considerable experience, can improve their skills in teaching. Participants who complete course assignments receive an AMEE-ESME Certificate in Medical Education in the areas addressed by the course.
