Southern Group on Educational Affairs (SGEA)

The SGEA fosters excellence along the continuum of medical education—undergraduate medical education, graduate medical education, and continuing medical education—by providing a forum for discussing the concerns of the medical education profession, serving as a resource, and acting in an advisory capacity to the GEA and AAMC. This mission is accomplished through communication, cooperation and shared respect among its members.

To accomplish its mission, the SGEA will:

  • Enhance the professional development of medical educators
  • Advance research and understanding in medical education
  • Provide service to the profession, and
  • Practice evidence-based principles of medical education.

SGEA Updates

Call for Proposals 2018 SGEA Innovations in Medical Education Award

The SGEA supports and encourages innovation in medical education. To recognize members who have developed an innovative approach to medical education and to support participation of SGEA members in activities that promote educational scholarship, the SGEA will provide one award of $5,000 each year to recognize an outstanding innovation in medical education. Innovations which promote collaborative projects across institutions, the health professions, and sections (UGME, GME, CME, and MESRE) will be given extra consideration. This is an award rather than a grant, so the winner may apply the funds wherever they see the greatest need for continued improvement in medical education. Click here   to learn more about the application and submission process.

Send applications to Special Projects Chair Nadia Ismail, and SGEA Chair, by June 1, 2018 for consideration for the current year’s award.
