Social Accountability of Medical School
University of New Mexico was awarded the ASPIRE-to-Excellence Award on Social Accountability Area of Excellence at AMEE 2014, Milan, Italy on Tuesday 2nd September 2014. As an important actor of this history, Professor Stewart Mennin represented UNM. See below his interview.
The ASPIRE-to-Excellence programme is a flagship AMEE initiative,
which has the potential of promoting teaching alongside research as a
measure ofexcellence in a medical school.
The ASPIRE initiative meets the needs for a form of quality assurance
that goes beyond accreditation, which recognises excellence that rightly
falls outside the formal accreditation process and is the remit of
professional educational bodies. The initiative allows medical schools
to be recognised internationally for their excellence in
medical education, in the first instance, in three spheres of activity:
Assessment of students;
Student engagement in the curriculum and in the medical school; and
Social responsibility and accountability as a mission of the medical school.
