The Medical Education Unit (MEU) was founded in 2005 with Professor Ian Wilson as its inaugural Director. Amongst the Unit's achievements are its central role in the delivery and continual improvement of a new accredited medical program in an area of need. From the beginning, the MEU has promoted scholarship
in learning and teaching through research, while maintaining key service roles in student selection, curriculum design and delivery, blended learning, assessment and evaluation for both our undergraduate and postgraduate medical programs.
As we move into our next phase, we look forward to strengthening our medical offerings, focusing on the quality of the student experience and of our teaching and assessment, and to seeing our graduates take up fulfilling careers. Underpinning all our activities is a collaborative and interdisciplinary
approach that seeks to create and translate the evidence for what works in health professional education. We warmly invite you to browse our website and contact myself or the MEU team to discuss ideas about learning, teaching and research in medical education.
