High quality medical education requires committed and skilled educators, researchers, and leaders. Capacity building for future educationalists is fundamental in the pursuit of excellence in medical education. Medical education as a discipline is undervalued, underfunded, and often badmouthed. In order to pave the way to excellence, we must lay down the correct career pathways and foster a supportive climate in our specialty. In order to attract and support tomorrow’s educationalists we argue that we need to champion the field, develop integrated clinical and educational training programmes, and promote role modelling and mentorship.
