This is a new prize, introduced for the academic year 2018/19. The prize follows the same submission criteria and format as the Sir John Ellis Prize, however, is specifically for projects completed during an intercalated degree.
A winner and runner-up will be announced once the assessment process has been completed. Both the winner and runner up will receive an emailed certificate and monetary prize. The winner will receive free registration for one to the Researching Medical Education conference in November 2020*.
Deadline for 2020 5pm, 27th August 2020
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.
It is expected that all projects have an element of evaluation or results at the time of submission. Those that do not have complete results will be marked according to our published mark scheme and their final score may be limited by this omission. We would recommend delaying submission to follow completion and evaluation of the project where possible.
The entry requirements for the ASME Intercalation Prize from 2019 onwards have been slightly amended.
We are now accepting submissions which have been previously submitted to other awards, have been presented at national and international meetings or have been published in full or in part.
The only exception is that we cannot accept submissions if the applicant has also submitted to the JASME Innovation or Sir John Ellis Prizes.
