This new ESME course for clinicians on the run is a self-directed course and is delivered over 6 months.
The need for doctors, scientists and others involved with teaching in the healthcare professions to have training in teaching is widely recognised. The AMEE Essential Skills in Medical Education (ESME) Online course has been designed to meet this need. The course is aimed at those new to teaching and at teachers with years of experience who would like an update on current best practice and a greater understanding of the basic principles.
The course recognises that, with appropriate help, all teachers, even those with considerable experience, can improve their skills in teaching.
The award of the AMEE-ESME Certificate in Medical Education provides evidence of the participant’s interest in education and abilities as a teacher.
The highly successful ESME course has been offered since 2005 in relation to medical education conferences. Since 2012 the course has been offered online. All that is required to participate is access to a broadband internet connection.
The ESME Online - Flexi course is a self-directed course and is delivered over 6 months.
