Academic medicine is constantly challenged by a breadth of external forces. Accreditation shifts, rapidly evolving technologies, and increasing costs continue to challenge institutions searching for creative solutions for supporting the education mission. Through it all, the leaders of medical education provide the expertise essential to building a better future for healthcare. 

The Medical Education Senior Leaders (MESL) is an AAMC-convened community whose focus is the continuing improvement of education in the nation's medical schools. As a forum for the senior member of the dean’s staff with oversight for education in medical schools, MESL identifies issues affecting the educational mission and develops strategies to support excellence. MESL was established in 2019 to:

  • Provide a forum for networking about common challenges and imperatives;
  • Generate and serve as a resource for members about best practices in medical education;
  • Foster collaborative mentorship between and among members;
  • Work bidirectionally with AAMC staff to advance resources and information to members on these issues.
