 The Calman Lecture

The Annual prestigious Calman Lecture is given in honour of Sir Kenneth Calman Hon FAcadMEd, one of the founders of the Academy of Medical Educators.  As a tribute to Sir Ken's own enormous involvement, leadership and contribution to teaching, learning and the organisation of medical training, the general theme for the Calman Lectures is reflections on the education of doctors.

The 2016 Calman Lecture was delivered by Cees van der Vleuten on 14th October 2016 at the Crossing Boundaries - Assessment in Medical Education conference in Exeter on 14th October - held in partnership with EBMA, ASME and Exeter and Plymouth Universities.
