The Academy of Medcal Educators in collaboration with CUREMeDE is looking for volunteers to become in volved in aproject to develop a Credentaial in Medical Education.

Credentialing is a new process proposed by the GMC as a means of recognising and regulating doctors’ capabilities in specific areas. A regulated credential in medical education would provide a means of appropriately recognising and regulating medical education leaders.  To this end, a credential in medical education has been under development for the last two years, led by the Wales Deanery and the Academy of Medical Educators (AoME). A portfolio has been drafted, framed around the AoME Professional Standards. We are now ready to pilot the portfolio and credential process with a small group of potential applicants.

Please find a full information sheet about the project here. After reading it, if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us. If you would like to take part, please let us know by XXX. The dates (as detailed in the attached) are Tuesday 23 May and XXX. To take part, you must be able to commit to both dates. The venue is The Novotel, Schooner Way, Cardiff, CF0 4RT. We will reimburse reasonable travel costs, and refreshments and lunch will be provided (please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements).
