Two former presidents of the Academy of medical educators received honorary fellowships at our spring conference in April 2019.

Professor Sean Hilton

Sean has a long and distinguished record of service to medical education. He was a Foundation Member and a member of Council from the Academy’s inception until 2017, becoming president in 2011 during one of our most difficult periods. Thanks to his exceptional service, the organisation not only survived but continued to make progress in achieving its charitable aims.

Professor Derek Gallen.

Derek has made an impressive contribution to medical education throughout his long career. He has been one of the major driving forces behind the Academy’s development, ensuring firm financial foundations during his time as Treasurer and subsequently as President, where he established our Cardiff Office and continued to develop and grow the Academy and its membership.

At our Spring Meeting April 2018 in Sheffield we were delighted to award Honorary Fellowships to Professor Neil Johnson, Professor Peter Kopelman, Dr Colin Melville and Mr David Russell.  At the Calman lecture in December 2018 we also has the pleasure of awarding Honorary Fellowships to Professor Wendy Burn, Professor David Croisdale-Appleby, Professor Anne Gadren, Professor Sheila the Baroness Hollins and Professor Peter Lees.
