The Multidisciplinary Educators Group (MEG) is a newly established special interest group within the Association for the Study of Medical Education (ASME). We are keen to explore the views of a diverse range of professionals who work within medical education in order to inform the priorities and goals of this new group. Whatever your medical education role or professional background, clinical or not, we want to hear from you!
The principal aim of MEG is to share our combined expertise and experiences in order to raise the profile of multidisciplinary educators. We will achieve this by focusing on the development, support and role promotion of medical educators who come from a professional background other than medicine, and by exploring and promoting their skills and expertise. Our vision is:
– To share knowledge and expertise regarding medical education.
– To provide networking opportunities.
– To offer a forum for members to seek support, advice or project collaboration.
– To raise awareness of diversity of backgrounds of those working in medical education in terms of
commonalities, challenges and unique skills.
In order to set initial goals and priorities for the group (as we have been unable to meet in person at the ASME ASM as planned in 2020), we would value your opinions and perspectives. What do you think the group should be doing first? What issues are important to you?
Please feel free to forward this questionnaire link to your colleagues and contacts – we are aiming to have representation from as diverse a range of professions as possible! It should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete.
There will be the opportunity at the end of the questionnaire for you to register interest in joining MEG (you do not need to be an individual member to join if your employer is an institutional member). However, your answers to the questions will be anonymised before presenting any summary data, so please do feel that you can answer freely.

We look forward to hearing from you!
