From 16th of February until 18th of February, the AMEE Executive Committee Meeting took place in Glasgow. EMSA was represented at the meeting by our EMSA Representatives to AMEE for the terms 2016/18 and 2018/19, Lara Teheux and Vagelis Papageorgiou.
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.

EMSA holds a seat in the AMEE Executive Committee representing medical students across Europe. The main topics discussed in the meeting included updates from AMEE Members, the AMEE Conference and the Student Task Force. EMSA’s presence in the meeting was really important in order to express the student voice in the Executive Committee.
AMEE offers many interesting opportunities for their members and through them, students can learn more and advocate for their own medical education.
The next AMEE Executive Committee Meeting will take place in the AMEE Conference taking place in Basel in August 2018. If you want to know more information about AMEE, you can visit their website www.amee.org.
