About

Fellowship recognises members of AMEE who have demonstrated a consistent commitment to excellence in health professional education through scholarly contributions to the field over at least five years. Fellows would typically either be academics holding senior roles related to education in their own institutions for a substantive period of time (five or more years), including scholarly contributions such as leading the development of a major curriculum innovation, or clinician educators who have demonstrated very high level and continuing commitment to facilitating the learning of students and junior colleagues in clinical or community settings underpinned by appropriate scholarship, or medical/health professional education researchers who have made significant contributions to the literature.  All should be recognised by peers for their scholarly achievements at national and international level.

In seeking Fellowship of AMEE, applicants make a commitment to continue their leadership and promotion of scholarship in medical/health professional education into the future, as well as to the ongoing mentorship and development of more junior members who aspire to recognition at Associate Fellow or Fellow level. Fellows are expected to contribute actively to AMEE activities.
