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.

To accomplish its mission, the SGEA will:

  • Enhance the professional development of medical educators
