About Masterclass

An internationally informed ESME Masterclass that will provide AMEE participants with a global appreciation of current Best Practices in CPD, the evidence and theory informing effective CPD, and practical approaches for implementing CPD within different settings.



The program follows a workshop format that is highly interactive and will employ a variety of methods including short presentations, small group work and individual reflection exercises. Participants will represent an international spectrum and thus play a significant role in developing a larger view of the issues and opportunities facing CPD professionals in the health care field. The goal is to build a knowledge building classroom in which the group together expands its knowledge and expertise as information and learning needs evolve. Time will be spent initially in working quickly through the basics of adult learning and evidence informing best practices in order to establish a base line from which to create projects and questions for the group itself. Participants will be encouraged to apply what they learn to their current practices through developing a project of most relevance to them. This will vary according to individual participants however, examples might include; designing and implementing a CPD innovation within a department, planning an evaluation framework, or creating an intervention to increase the credibility of CPD as an academic discipline within their organization.

Participants may choose to submit, within six months of completion of the masterclass, a short report describing the application of the ESCEPD competencies in their own CPD practice, leading to award of the AMEE-ESCEPD Certificate in Medical Education.

Who Should Attend

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. It is appropriate for beginners and those at an intermediary point in their CPD careers.
