The Scholarship Committee ensures that SACME members have opportunities to learn the scholarly approaches to doing and assessing CME/CPD. The goal of the committee is to foster scholarship through education, mentoring, and support of both novice and experienced scholars.

The charge to the SACME Scholarship Committee is to provide guidance to the SACME Board in growing and maintaining SACME’s role as the international academic leader in CME/CPD scholarship. Members work in subcommittees to:

  • assess and report on the status of the discipline
  • build capacity to conduct and enhance research by scholars and CME/CPD consumers and to establish an institutional scholarly environment
  • develop and support/facilitate research.

Work of the Scholarship Committee is organized under three active subcommittees.
