The need for doctors, scientists and others involved with teaching in the healthcare professions to have training in teaching is widely recognized. The AMEE Essential Skills in Medical Education (ESME) 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. It has also been delivered as a standalone course in Australia. The course is now being offered online. All that is needed to participate is access to a broadband internet connection.
