About Medical Teacher

Journal Covers

Medical Teacher is the journal of the Association for Medical Education in Europe, an international association for all involved with medical and healthcare professions education. It is published in collaboration with Taylor and Francis. Members of AMEE receive the journal free with their membership subscription.

Medical Teacher addresses the needs of teachers and administrators throughout the world involved in training for the health professions. This includes courses at basic and post-basic levels as well as the increasingly important area of continuing education.

Medical Teacher provides accounts of new teaching methods, guidance on structuring courses and assessing achievement, and serves as a forum for communication between medical teachers and those involved in general education.

In particular, the journal recognises the problems teachers have in keeping up-to-date with the developments in educational methods that lead to more effective teaching and learning at a time when the content of the curriculum, from medical procedures to policy changes in health care provision, is also changing.

The journal features reports of innovation and research in medical education, case studies, survey articles, practical guidelines, reviews of current literature and book reviews. All articles are peer reviewed.
