“What makes a medical school academic? A quality assurance initiative by AMSE” – AMSE workshop at the AMEE conference in Glasgow
In Europe, medical education has evolved in several different ways with respect to the national traditions and structures of higher education of its countries. There are increasing concerns on quality and outcomes of medical education related to upcoming new medical schools, especially those less firmly connected with a university faculty body. The challenges and risks of the current political climate in Higher Education in Europe have stimulated AMSE to deal with the WFME standards in relation to European medical schools to develop a quality assurance strategy.
Everyone who is interested in the quality assurance of medical schools and medical education – deans, program or curriculum directors and educational policy makers – is invited to participate at this workshop
Participants will have the opportunity to work with others on exploring challenges and risks of academic medical education in Europe, to develop potential quality standards for academic medical schools and to contribute to quality assurance initiative by AMSE.
