The Faculty Development Committee acts as a guide for AMEE in all areas relating to Faculty Development and has the following as its driving goals:

  • To advance best practice and excellence in the development of health professional academic faculty across the globe
  • To provide advice to the AMEE Executive Committee and AMEE staff on the area of faculty and health professional educator development
  • To promote scholarly work in faculty and health professional educator development to and among the membership of AMEE
  • To oversee the selection of sites and appointment of conference organising committees for biennial International Conferences on Faculty Development in the Health Professions into the future
  • To develop and deliver a symposium on a current topic in faculty and health professional educator development at each AMEE conference that is not associated with an International Conference on Faculty Development in the Health Professions
  • To consider and develop other global and regional activities to support and advance faculty and health professional educator development
  • To keep AMEE members informed about current issues and events in faculty and health professional educator development through MedEdWorld and MedEdPublish.
