Directors of Medical Education

Responsible for maintaining and developing high quality medical education and training within their NHS Board.

Directors of Medical Education (DMEs) are consultants or doctors appointed to NHS Boards.  Each DME works in close collaboration with the Postgraduate Deans.

DME's are responsible for ensuring that trainers and trainees employed by their NHS Board are fit to practice.

Each DME ensures that their NHS Board delivers the high standards of postgraduate medical education required by NES and the General Medical Council.
