About

Associate Fellowship recognises members of AMEE who have demonstrated a consistent commitment to medical/health professions education through their scholarly contributions to the field. Successful applicants may use the post nominal AFAMEE.

Associate Fellows would typically be academics or health professionals who have been recognised as effective teachers, researchers, developers and leaders in education in their own institutions for a period more than three years and who have demonstrated a commitment to facilitating the learning of students and junior colleagues in academic, clinical and/or community settings.

In seeking Associate Fellowship of AMEE, applicants make a commitment to promote scholarship in health professions education, including the ongoing mentorship and development of more junior members of AMEE who aspire to recognition at Associate Fellow level. Associate Fellows are expected to contribute actively to AMEE activities (contributions to MedEdWorld, chairing sessions at conferences, contribute to an AMEE Special Interest Group, reviewing papers for Medical Teacher and MedEdPublish, BEME activities, committee and task force membership etc)
