Deadline for submissions 5pm, 29th August 2019
This award is for projects completed during an intercalation year.
Projects may include:
- Original research
- Detailed literature reviews
- Educational interventions
Submissions should be a description of a piece of work, survey, research or innovation in which the student has been directly involved, in the field of medical education. Candidates should aim to include the following:
- Discussion of medical educational literature
- Reflection on personal development
The expectation is of a well-structured, purposeful and disciplined piece of work that will be of general interest to a medical education audience. Curricular innovations and new methods are welcomed but must include justification, appropriate references to literature and elements of evaluation – these may be more eligible for our innovation prizes.
Submissions must be original and not derived from any other body of work by the student or collaborators. The work must not have been submitted previously for any other award, presented at national or international meetings or published in full or in part in any medium.
