Calman Lecture & President's Evening


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.

In our 15th year of AoME, we were delighted annd privileged to have Sir Ken Calman himself feature at the Calman event.  Interviewed by two of the Academy's Developing Medical Educator Group and council members Dr Jamie Fisher and Dr Lewis Hendon-John, this was an exciting event showcasing the best of hybrid events.
