Academy Participation and Service

    Members actively participate in the Academy's work to promote educational excellence in the UCSF community.

    Academy members serve as mentors to faculty within all health professions schools at UCSF, Teaching Scholars, residents and other teachers interested in developing as teachers. Upon request, they also assist courses, clerkships and departments in strengthening their teaching (see TOP). Members promote and support interdisciplinary and interdepartmental approaches to medical education and collaborate with colleagues in academic departments and the Office of Medical Education to develop, implement and evaluate improvements in the curriculum.

    In addition to their participation in these activities, members must be productive AME citizens and fulfill minimum annual service expectations. AME service is self-directed and fundamental to the AME's founding principles. (Click on links for additional information and examples.)
