Our History

The National Association of Medical Education Centre Administrators (NAPMECA) was formed. In 2001, following a ballot of its members, it was decided that the association be renamed National Association for Medical Education Management (NAMEM) to build on the solid foundations and to reflect the changing patterns in medical education management.

Our Mission and Purpose

  • Be an expert reference group for the management of medical education

  • Provide a network of regional groups through which good practice is disseminated using the NAMEM representative.

  • Support the development of our members, and all those involved in medical education, through publications of good practice, study days, conferences, and further education.

  • Provide a national voice and expertise to other organisations involved in medical education; GMC,HEE, COPMED, NACT and others, forging professional relationships and connections by attending meetings and promoting NAMEM.


Our 2021 Conference in York

The York Conference is scheduled for the 8th and 9th February 2021. We will continue to monitor guidance on public gatherings and provide updates via email and our social media platforms to keep all informed.

NAMEM are sorry to announce the death of Judi Sharpe

Judi worked in the NHS for 33 years, she first trained as a medical secretary and worked at Bart’s Hospital and then Primary Care for a short time. She moved to Southend hospital where she was A&E office Manager and in 1993 moved to Postgraduate Medical Education where she worked as MEM until her retirement in 2011.


Judi was East of England NAMEM Representative for many years and had a wide breadth of knowledge and experience which she shared with her regional group at their regular meetings. She was NAMEM secretary for a while and later NAMEM Chair 2003-2005 and for many  years she edited NAMEM newsletter.   


Judi had an unwavering passion for NAMEM and a great supporter of the NAMEM training programme. She was never afraid of a challenge and was instrumental in organising many conferences and meetings over the years, delivering numerous presentations at various events on behalf of NAMEM Council.


Judi was a lovely lady with a friendly, bubbly personality and an instant smile; she gave helpful advice especially to new members of the Association and continued to keep an interest in Medical Education long after her retirement.


Judi will be very sadly missed by her NAMEM colleagues and we send our sincere condolences to her family.
