About AMEE Faculty Development Committee:


In 2011, Drs. Ivan Silver (University of Toronto) and Yvonne Steinert (McGill University) envisioned an international conference on faculty development in the health professions, with the goal of bringing together a global community of faculty developers and medical educators. At the time, there was no academic conference that specifically focused on the field of faculty development for academic health science centers world-wide and it was felt that such a conference would serve an important purpose.

In 2013 and 2017, the International Faculty Development Conferences have been held in conjunction with AMEE, and as of 2019 they will be held in conjunction with the AMEE Faculty Development Committee.
