Course Accreditation and AccreditationPlus

For course providers
The Academy of Medical Educators is pleased to offer a course accreditation scheme for courses aimed at training those who are involved in the education and training of practitioners and students of medicine, including physician associates, dentistry and veterinary surgery.
Accreditation of your course provides an independent validation of its quality judged against the Academy’s Professional Standards. There are two levels of accreditation - Accreditation and AccreditationPlus.  The higher level is awarded to courses where candidates typically complete a course over at least a year and are on a path to become career educators. See the  guidance documents: Accreditation Standards   ; Accreditation Guidance for Courses 
An accredited course can state that it is "Accredited by the Academy of Medical Educators" and use the Academy’s logo on course materials (subject to prior sight by the Academy).
If you are a course provider and interested in having a course accredited by AoME please download the application form here .
You will find here a list of our current accredited courses.

For applicants
Anyone who has successfully completed an Accredited course will be able to apply for Membership of the Academy without the need to go through the full application and assessment process. They will be required to complete the 500 word reflective statement and provide details of a supporter*, but will not need to complete the CPD and peer review sections (upon uploading evidence of accredited course completion the application form will automatically skip this section). Go to the membership application form here.
For those who have successful completed an AccreditedPlus course will have already completed significant amounts of reflection and will therefore be able to apply for membership by completing the application form without any further evidence of their studies. AccreditationPlus candidates should state the name of the course/institution in the free text box intended for the reflective statement.
Membership of the Academy allows the use of the post-nominal letters MAcadMEd, and signifies that the individual has been judged to meet the Academy’s Professional Standards for Medical Educators at an appropriate level.

 

*Please provide the name and contact details for a supporter (e.g. an existing Member or Fellow of the Academy, or your Head of Department)

who can provide us with further information, if required.
