What is the BEME Collaboration?

The Best Evidence Medical Education (BEME) Collaboration is an international group of individuals, universities and professional organisations 
committed to the development of evidence informed education in the medical and health professions through:

  •  the dissemination of information which allows teachers and stakeholders in the medical and health professions to make decisions on the basis of the best evidence available,
  •  the production of systematic reviews which present the best available evidence and meet the needs of the user,
  •  the creation of a culture of best evidence education amongst individuals, institutions and national bodies.

What are the BICCs?

BEME International Collaborating Centres (BICCs) are responsible for progressing the ongoing work of the BEME Collaboration and planning for its further development through the work of their centre.
