Academy Membership Benefits
Membership in the Academy of Medical Educators provides professional and personal rewards. These include:
- The Academy provides a cross-departmental community of dedicated educators who work together to strengthen their own teaching and to promote excellence in teaching throughout the School of Medicine.
- Academy members are recognized as highly accomplished educators and are often consulted by colleagues and departmental leaders on questions of educational import.
Because of the rigor of the selection process, Academy membership is known to be a sign of outstanding performance by the committees who oversee UCSF's merit and promotion process.
- Members are eligible to apply for Academy endowed chairs and travel support for professional development and presentations relating to the Academy and its mission.
