The Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE) is a worldwide organisation with members in 90 countries on five continents. Members include teachers, educators, researchers, administrators, curriculum developers, deans, assessors, students and trainees in medicine and the healthcare professions.
AMEE promotes international excellence in education in the healthcare professions across the continuum of undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing education. AMEE, working with other organisations, supports teachers and institutions in their current educational activities and in the development of new approaches to curriculum planning, teaching and learning methods, assessment techniques and educational management, in response to advances in medicine, changes in healthcare delivery and patient demands and new educational thinking and techniques.
AMEE launched MedEdPublish (ISSN 2312–7996) as the Association’s international open access e-journal in 2012 to publish and disseminate more of the work undertaken by the health professions community. The journal has evolved significantly as the Association has explored innovative approaches to publishing, and a new website was launched in 2016 to showcase the e-journal.
