how and why to register

Locally, as a SAAHE member, you automatically become a member of your SAAHE Chapter. Each SAAHE Chapter has as its goal to promote health professions education at member institutions. Each chapter offers a range of activities, ranging from webinars and journal clubs to twice yearly symposiums. 

As a chapter member, you will be entitled to serve on your Chapter Council and by extension, the Organisational Council. Your membership thus offers you the opportunity to shape how the development of health professions education happens. You will also be entitled to vote at the SAAHE AGM and determine the direction of the organisation.

By joining a Special Interest Group, you have the opportunity to learn from and with experts in your specific area of interest from across the region. You will be able to share your expertise on a national stage. Each SIG offers two symposia or workshops each year, one during the year and one at the SAAHE Conference. As a member of a SIG, you also have the opportunity to contribute to one position paper each year aimed at driving national conversations on topics of interest.

Your membership gains you access to all SAAHE events (other than our annual conference) for free! That means you have access to all events run by SAAHE Chapters and all events run by SAAHE Special Interest Groups.

As a SAAHE member, you also become part of a community that honours practitioners and researchers in HPE each year with our Distinguished Educator Award and Best Publication Award.

We look forward to your participation in helping grow health professions education in our region. 

Please get in touch if you have any queries or suggestions. You can also follow us on Twitter and on LinkedIn.

Your personal information will not be shared with any 3rd parties and will only be used for the purposes of communicating SAAHE-related activities (e.g. conference information, local journal clubs, etc.). You will always have the option to opt-out of receiving communications from SAAHE, even while retaining your membership of the organisation.
