Medical Education Journal Club

The Academy of Distinguished Medical Educators (ADME) organizes a Medical Education Journal Club that is broadcast from the host site to all HSC campuses.

The ADME Medical Education Journal Club provides a venue in which participants can:

  • gain an appreciation for how medical education research is conducted
  • examine the evidence behind novel methodologies in medical education
  • understand the basis for major controversies in medical education
  • be sensitized to future trends in medical education
  • have an opportunity to get to know faculty members on other campuses through the presentations and group discussions

Papers from the medical education literature are presented in a journal club format, giving participants the opportunity to share their expertise. The papers discussed represent substantive contributions to high-impact journals which report either experimental studies with data, comprehensive reviews of a hot (or controversial) topic in medical education, or meta-analyses of a series of previous publications on a topic.

Announcements about dates and locations are emailed to all faculty.

Medical Education Grand Rounds

Education Grand Rounds (EGRs) are live offerings on a variety of topics of interest to medical educators. These offerings are video conferenced to all Texas A&M University Health Science Center locations. Attendance at Education Grand Rounds counts toward satisfying the College of Medicine faculty development requirements with most offerings eligible for CME credit as well.

Please refer to the College of Medicine calendar for upcoming Education Grand Rounds.

Mentoring for Educational Excellence and Leadership Program

The mission of the Academy of Distinguished Medical Educators (ADME) is to promote excellence in education within the Texas A&M College of Medicine. To serve this mission, the ADME has created the Mentoring for Educational Excellence and Leadership (MEEL) Program.

Through the MEEL Program, the ADME will partner with the Department of Medical Education to address the mentoring needs of the College of Medicine faculty and postdoctoral trainees in the areas of instruction and leadership in medical and graduate education. The program will last one year and will be individualized to the needs of the faculty and postdoctoral trainees involved.

As a participant of the program, we offer guidance in medical education instruction, graduate education instruction, and/or leadership development to both faculty and postdoctoral trainees (MEEL Fellows) by senior faculty (Mentors).

The Mentoring for Educational Excellence and Leadership Program will address mentoring needs of junior (up to associate level) or new faculty (less than seven years at COM) in the areas of instruction and leadership in medical and graduate education.
