Membership and Fellowship – HESA recognition guidance 

The Academy of Medical Educators (AoME) is the multiprofessional organisation for those involved in the education and training of students and practitioners in medicine, dentistry and veterinary science. The AoME has developed a set of Professional Standards[1] which are an explicit statement of the values, skills, knowledge and practical capabilities required of those engaged in medical education. Individuals can seek assessment and recognition of their teaching practice against the standards at Membership and Fellowship level to gain the MAcadMEd or FAcadMEd postnominal. Assessment is a formal, peer reviewed process overseen by an embedded governance structure within the AoME
HEIs are required by HESA to collect and submit data relating to the academic teaching qualifications of academic staff. To assist HEIs in submitting data relating to the AoME accreditation scheme, colleagues with confirmed MAcadMEd or FAcadMEd status should be submitted under the 08 code – “accredited as a teacher of their subject by a professional UK body[2]. This entry is of equivalent status to holding a PGCHE or AdvanceHE recognition, negating the need for these qualifications in addition to AoME recognition for the purposes of HESA returns.
