The success of the initiative has encouraged AMEE to launch a new and significantly improved version of www.mededworld.org This new and improved site will feature easier navigation, increased functionality, and many enhanced and additional features. MedEdWorld Version 2 will go live between April and May 2012.

- An easier to navigate Content Submission process;
- An improved Search function.
As we move into this exciting new phase we are recruiting for Contributors who have expertise or a particular interest in the field of medical education.
