Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

Welcome to the MedEdWorld Special Interest Groups (SIGs). This section of MedEdWorld  provides a facility for individuals with an interest in a specific aspect of education in the health care professions to engage in discussion and share information and ideas with others with a similar interest. Some groups have open access and others are by invitation only. AMEE members can initiate new SIGs by contacting [email protected] with details of the SIG such as title, description, educational area and the type of access to be permitted (open access or invitation only).

To contribute to a group discussion register as a user on MedEdWorld for FREE or join AMEE as a member.

SIG posts are regularly monitored.  Any posts that are considered to be libellous, slanderous or offensive will be removed.  MedEdWorld asks users to report inappropriate comments either by clicking on the ‘report abuse’ button at the bottom of each SIG post or the ‘Contact/Report abuse’ button in the left menu.

Curriculum Mapping
This SIG will offer an opportunity to discuss issues related to web applications and other means of collecting, managing and analyzing curricular information. We expect the discussion to focus on design and features of available applications, utilization by faculty and students, and evaluation of performance and outcomes. Other topics would include integration with Learning Management Systems, and implications for curriculum and faculty development.
