Best evidence medical and health professional education

The Best Evidence Medical and Health Professional Education (BEME) Collaboration is an international group of individuals, universities, and professional organisations committed to the development of evidence informed education in the medical and health professions through:

  • the dissemination of information which allows teachers and stakeholders in the medical and health professions to make decisions on the basis of the best evidence available;
  • the production of systematic reviews which present the best available evidence and meet the needs of the user; and
  • the creation of a culture of best evidence education amongst individuals, institutions and national bodies.

BEME is sponsored by the Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE).  Check out some of their publications here.
