ECME

Early Career Medical Educators

Early Career Medical Educators (ECME) is a nation-wide community of engaged and collaborative scholars in medical education. We are students, teachers, researchers, clinicians, and leaders in the pursuit of improving education through scholarship. We provide a forum for networking between members as well as connections with senior colleagues and mentors. This includes formal and informal events at the CCME conference where we gather to share and learn from each other as well as more senior mentors in our field.  Our members are actively contributing to CAME in order to grow and support the community of medical and health professions educators in Canada. To join our list serve, please email Dr. Tim Dubé (tim.dube@usherbrooke.ca).
