Improving Health Care through Medical Education

AHME fills a truly unique niche that no other professional organization throughout the continuum offers. I have never experienced such an ecumenical community of professionals at all levels. The sharing is truly remarkable, reflecting a culture of “We’re all in this together!

AHME Institute

The AHME Institute is a three-day conference, which features a blend of presentations from policy-makers as well as those who translate these policies into educational programming at the local level to ensure that their training programs are successful and their graduates are well prepared for the healthcare environment of the future. Educational tracks are offered for institutional educational leaders and administrators, program directors, program administrators and coordinators, as well as continuing medical education professionals. A poster session is also incorporated into this annual meeting, providing educators an opportunity to share their success stories with colleagues who may then apply these ideas in their home institutions.

AHME Academy

The AHME Academy is a one-day conference designed to provide new graduate medical education administrators an overview of their duties and experienced professionals some fresh approaches to their responsibilities. The Academy is held several times each year in various locations around the country to maximize the accessibility and affordability of this training.

AHME Webinar

AHME Webinars are presented six times per year to provide AHME members and others access to valuable content in the comfort of their own offices. Webinars are priced by phone line rather than by the number of participants, making it possible to gather a group of educators to take part in a session and then discuss the content immediately following the presentation. Members are also eligible for an additional 25% discount on the already reduced member registration rate if the teleconferences for the year are purchased as a package.
