Course description:

ESME’s novel course structure combines a purpose-built course on teaching with an international medical education Conference. ESME is accredited by AMEE and approved by an international Advisory Board.

Course content:

Led by Professor Ronald Harden, this broad-based course has been designed around a set of competencies that all practising teachers should possess. These include: Effective Teaching, Skilled Educational Planning and Informed Assessment and Evaluation.

Who should attend?

The ESME Course has been designed to meet the need for an entry level teaching qualification and will be of particular interest to teachers who are engaging with medical education for the first time. It will also be valuable for more experienced teachers who wish to have an introduction to the theory underpinning the practice of teaching. It has been designed in the context that all doctors in any branch of medicine or field of practice are likely to have some teaching responsibilities for undergraduates, postgraduates, peers, or other healthcare workers.
