Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing are part of the University of Cambridge. We are global leaders in the production and delivery of specialised assessments for the healthcare industry. We are a trusted partner for schools, universities, governments and employers all over the world. We support institutions with their selection processes to ensure they are efficient, effective, fair and transparent to select the individuals who will succeed in higher education and the workplace. We worked with medical schools, exam boards and healthcare institutions around the world to develop two globally recognised specific assessments:
1. The BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT), an assessment of an individual’s skills and application of scientific knowledge that are considered critical to success in the healthcare profession.
2. The Cambridge Personal Styles Questionnaire (CPSQ), an online questionnaire to assess an applicant’s personal styles of thinking, feeling and behaving to support recruitment/selection and professional development for healthcare courses or employment.

Academy of Medical Educators
The Academy of Medical Educators (AoME), established in 2006, is a charitable organisation which exists to advance medical education for the benefit of the public. It is the professional organisation for all those involved in the training and education of doctors, dentists, veterinary surgeons and physician associates. The Academy is the standard setting body for medical educators in the UK. Its Professional Standards define the level of competence that medical educators should achieve at each point in their careers. The Standards provide a recognised framework for professionals to demonstrate expertise in medical education through accreditation as a medical teacher. Recognition by AoME demonstrates skills and competence when applying for revalidation, promotion and approval as a trainer.
