In Memoriam - Dr Clifford Mann OBE HonFAcadMEd

It is with great sadness that the Academy of Medical Educators noted the death of Dr Clifford Mann on 23rd February 2021. Clifford was awarded Honorary Fellowship of the Academy in 2014 in recognition of over 20 years’ commitment to Postgraduate medical education. A graduate of Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School, Cliff’s subsequent career in Emergency Medicine and determination to improve outcomes for patients led him to develop training programmes in his Deanery and then internationally in Zanzibar and beyond. His educational developments ranged from face to face apprenticeship-style learning, to innovative e-learning, conference presentations and books.

Cliff’s commitment to high quality patient care and medical education continued through his work in the Royal College of Emergency Medicine, where he held the posts of Registrar and President, and more recently in his role as National Clinical Advisor for Emergency Care. He was awarded the OBE in the 2018 New Year’s Honours for his services to emergency medicine. Globally, hundreds of thousands of patients have benefited from his input. He was a gentle, warm, humorous, humble man who will be hugely missed by colleagues and friends. The Academy extends its deepest condolences to his family.


Here is a list of all of the individuals whose extraordinary contributions in the field of medical education the Academy has sought to recognise through Honorary Fellowship.
