Collected AMSE declarations

This collection brings together all the declaration and policy paper agreed by AMSE since 2007. AMSE organises regular conferences on topics of particular interest to deans, heads of medical schools and other staff of medical faculties. These conferences normally produce a declaration summarising policy recommendation arising from the conferences.

AMSE believes that these policy recommendations are of value to medical faculties, universities, regulatory agencies, and all concerned with the management and funding of medical schools and faculties.
