Our annual one day conference took place at Sheffield Hallam Universityon Wednesday 25 April 2018. 

The Academy of Medical Educators promotes high quality education for the benefit of patients and the public: to achieve high quality teaching and learning we must ensure fairness for all.  In an increasingly highly pressured and competitive NHS and higher education environment how do we ensure that our educational practice is entirely fair and equitable? What are the barriers to a fair approach and how can we be sure that unconscious factors are not affecting our decisions regarding students and trainees, colleagues, staff and patients?

One of the best opportunities for medical, dental, and veterinary educators to come together to share good practice and the latest innovations in healthcare education and for networking, academic collaboration, and professional development, the conference featured keynote speakers, workshops and short presentations designed to support colleagues in advancing their work as medical, dental, and veterinary educators.  See the full programme here
