SMP Staff Achieves Medical Education Certification

Sarah Hanson, Program Coordinator for the Faculty of Medicine’s Integrated Community Clerkship Programs is now certified as a Canadian Medical Education Administrator (CMEA) with the Canadian Administrators in Medical Education Operations (CAMEO). Based at Vernon Jubilee Hospital, Hanson has supported and advocated for ICC programs in Vernon and across the province since 2011.

Hanson successfully demonstrated the skills, knowledge and experience for the CMEA certification, which is centred on the Royal College CanMEDS competencies for administration. She was also acknowledged by the organization for her pursuit of life-long learning and professional growth.

“The process of obtaining my CMEA has allowed me to reflect on and honour the work that I do,” says Hanson. “I am very fortunate to be involved in medical education and work with amazing colleagues across the province.”
