Training, Education and Development Group
The Training, Education and Development for Medical Information and Library professionals (TrEDMIL) identifies and provides training and education opportunities for our profession, both for new entrants to the profession and for practitioners who need to update and develop their skills and knowledge.
TrEDMIL currently has three sub-groups: Competencies frameworks, Continuing Professional Development and Graduate and Postgraduate Education and a working group on Communications and events.

Communications and Events
The TrEDMIL Working Group has set up a TrEDMIL Events Diary to provide easy access to training and education events of relevance to EAHIL members. Please do contact Igor Brbre if you wish to get involved in compiling and maintaining this TrEDMIL events diary. Please also contact Igor to propose any events for inclusion in the diary (but do, please, check the diary first to ensure they are not already listed!)
Communications about the SIG via blogposts on the EAHIL website and through the official EAHIL Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts could generate more awareness and involvement. The SIG will actively explore this in 2022-2023.
Maintaining and further developing competencies frameworks will be essential for all work on postgrad programmes and CPD. This group will monitor trends in the education and training requirements of health information professionals and medical librarians to help inform CPD and formal qualification programme development.
