As you are preparing for your program and planning your overall career as an AME, please take the following self-evaluation tool that considers many aspects of being an AME. This is a tool for your personal use. Please note if you answer “no” or “maybe” to any of these questions, it doesn’t mean you can’t begin the program. It is simply an opportunity to take some time to reflect before your program begins and you may want to contact the program coordinator to get more information.
