What is Best Evidence in Medical Education?

And how does it integrate into my teaching and educational leadership?

Best Evidence Medical Education (BEME) consists of reviews of the health professions education literature on key topics, in order to inform educational practice and leadership. BEME reviews are conducted by voluntary teams of medical education scholars from around the world.

CU is one of only 30 medical schools in the U.S. with a program aimed at attracting, admitting and nurturing students who aspire to become rural physicians.
