Fellowship

In September 2014, the general assembly of AMEE accepted a proposal to restructure its membership into three categories: Members, Associate Fellows and Fellows.  

We hope these new membership levels will assist educators around the world to establish recognition of a career in medical/health professions education and underscore their concomitant responsibility to contribute to the development of more junior colleagues.

Associate Fellow

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.
