Medical Education SIG

Medical Education Special Interest Group

OBJECTIVE

The Medical Education SIG was formed in 1999 by ANZCA fellows who wanted to further the interest of many of our fellows in medical education.  As of 2014, the special interest group has 1028 members across the ANZCA region. The main activities of the special interest group include participation in the Combined Special Interest Group meeting each year, and also providing interesting speakers and content for a session at the ANZCA ASM and ASA NSC each year.

MERGER WITH THE SIMULATION SIG

In August 2013 the Simulation SIG and the Medical Education SIG merged to form a new SIG.

It was decided that the Simulation SIG was established at a time when simulation was a new type of educational methodology, largely promoted by anaesthetists, and it was felt that the formation of a special interest group to promulgate the methodology was important to building it up and achieving success. This is no longer the case - simulation is now a well accepted educational tool, which has become mainstream and multidisciplinary. It no longer needs to be specifically promoted and can be encompassed under the broader umbrella of ‘medical education’.

EXECUTIVE

The Executive of the Medical Education SIG meets regularly, usually via teleconference to discuss matters related to the group's area of interest.
