Undergraduate Medical Education Committee (UMEC)

The APGO Undergraduate Medical Education Committee (UMEC) was established in 1965 and is a twelve-member committee that addresses issues of medical student education and faculty development in a changing health care environment.

The committee’s many accomplishments are visible throughout the country as medical educators utilize the resources it develops and attend the meetings it plans. The UMEC produces teaching tools, organizes faculty development seminars and promotes innovative teaching methods for continued excellence in undergraduate medical education.
