AMEI Educator Development Framework (EDF)

By Educators, For Educators

Become a More Effective Educator

The Educator Development Framework (EDF) is a framework designed by educators, for all healthcare educators within the SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre. It is created by the AMEI Professional Development Committee (PDC) with the intent to provide a structured framework to guide educator development, aligned to a shared mental model of the different educator roles we play. To perform each role well and to become more competent educators, educators need to understand how to integrate the AMEI competencies across the five domains effectively.
