The ASME Educator Development Committee (EDC) would like to bring to your attention new vacancies that have arisen on the committee.

What is the EDC?
We are a group of experienced and enthusiastic medical educators. As per our mission statement, our role is to support and promote the evidence informed professional development of the community of educators. We achieve this through promoting and disseminating good educational practice for the benefit of patient care, encouraging the scholarly development and career progression of educators and facilitating networking and collaboration across education communities.
What does membership involve?
Membership of the committee provides a number of exciting opportunities including: supporting the organisation of regional and national medical education events, the opportunity to share and develop new ideas/good practice, representing ASME at external events such as conferences, reviewing abstracts for ASME conferences and contributing to a selection of ASME awards.
We usually meet four times a year (a mix of face-to-face and online meetings) and number up to 10. There is a need to do some work remotely between meetings. Membership is for three years, usually renewable once.

ASME particularly welcomes applicants from diverse and under-represented backgrounds.
