ASME has partnered with Healthcare Leadership Academy (HLA) and Medics Academy on their upcoming virtual conference - Medical Education During COVID. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged the continuity of formal medical education across the world. Despite the  tremendous barriers that lockdown conditions have imposed upon educators, this has been a period of incredible evolution and powerful change, characterised by the development of a wealth of new and innovative ways to overcome and improve upon traditional conceptions of teaching and learning in healthcare.

Innovators in medical education have taken this enormous obstacle and turned it into an extraordinary opportunity to improve medical education forever. Therefore, the essence of this conference will be to ensure that the legacy of this period of lockdown does not forget the pioneering work currently making transformational progress within the field of medical education.

This conference aims to provide an open and on-going discussion of our collective, local and national experiences along with the hurdles involved in teaching the new generation of healthcare professionals remotely. We want to address the question: how can we learn from each other to provide medical education to health professionals as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students across the world? 

This virtual conference will be held on Saturday 6th June from 9:30am to 4:30pm. 

Aims:

  • Lessons learnt on Medical Education 
  • Moving Forwards - engaging innovative solutions
  • Continuing Education to the Next Generation of Health Professionals - Supporting the education of our future healthcare staff

Statement from our Chair regarding Covid-19
and ASME events

Desperate times call for desperate measures and so it was with great sadness that the Board of Directors made the decision to postpone our ASM planned for July 2020 in Liverpool and several other events/meetings. Our next ASM will now take place in 2021, details of date and venue will follow.

We envisaged that large gatherings of people would be unsafe and of course wanted to do our bit to reduce the transmission of Covid-19. Many of our membership will be increasing their clinical duties and for those involved in transferring curricula online life has been very hectic. We want to support our members, healthcare professionals and educators who are providing front-line NHS services and training students to do so. 

A big thank you to all our ASME members who are involved on the frontline as key workers during the Covid-19 pandemic - we appreciate all you do and hope that you stay safe.
