The Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE) Conference, Vienna, Austria
Austria Centre Vienna
KnE’s Head of Learning, Samantha Miles, will be presenting a short communication at this year’s Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE) Conference, on professional development through training. The Egyptian Knowledge Bank, an initiative of the Ministry of Education, commissioned a project for capacity-building training to promote ‘Teaching Excellence in Medical Education’. After successful delivery of pilot program in 2017, the initiative evolved into a national project of professional development fostering collaboration between the multiple government entities, all government sponsored medical schools, and a private service provider. The project, delivered in 2018, aimed to build the critical mass of professors with the necessary skills and mindset to drive curriculum reform and implement teaching excellence practice to move towards a fully integrated, competency-based 5+2 structed medical education curriculum.
Samantha will be discussing how significant and rapid changes are possible when there is a shared vision, facilitated by stakeholders and supported by a team of international experts. One of the outcomes of the project has been the renewal of the project to meet the greater demand for training and support to facilitate further radical development of medical education in Egypt.
