EBMA welcomes medical schools or health education institutions to become EBMA member. As well as participation in developing new assessments and quality assuring those already established, membership will give access to other participants through web based or face to face meetings in which the development work does, and will, take place. Some members may wish to join with others for research and development opportunities, others may wish to benchmark student / doctor performance against a larger cohort. All of these plans will be considered by the EBMA Board to ensure they meet our standards for the conduct of research and development.

Benefits for new members will be:

  • Working together with a community of established experts from different European countries to create a unique assessment resource that could improve quality of healthcare
  • To provide an opportunity for students and some postgraduates in medicine to establish their learning needs and receive feedback including benchmarking against the performance of others at the same, or similar stage.
  • To support faculty as they seek to reform/improve local assessment programmes by providing access to high quality assessment formats supported by experts.
  •  To participate in identifying the most useful and relevant approaches for assessing performance in the workplace/clinicalsetting taking account of cultural differences. And to participate in research when new insights need evaluating.

For new members we will offer two levels of membership:

  • a trial membership: a way to discover EBMA for one year and see if our goals, ambitions, work and products/services suit you.
  • a full membership: the opportunity to develop and take part in pilots for new products/services, have a stake in decisions taken by the board and benefit from unlimited use of the EKT.

More detailed information of the membership possibilities can be found in our EBMA brochure: EBMA brochure 2015 04
