ASME’s Educator Development Committee (EDC) seeks to support and promote the personal and professional development of healthcare educators of all disciplines and to disseminate good practice in medical education.

The ASME EDC Education Innovation Awards have been developed to highlight, promote and disseminate examples of innovative educational practice in healthcare professionals’ education. The value of this award is up to a maximum of £1,000 towards professional development expenses and one free registration for the ASME ASM.

The ASME EDC Education Innovation Awards are aimed at providing funding for an individual educator or team of educators to develop an educational innovation that demonstrates originality, is of practical significance, is applicable to educators in other centres and which may fill a gap in pedagogy. Options might include (but are not limited to) novel curriculum or assessment approaches, instructional materials development or learning support activities. The educational innovation projects are likely to be short-term projects and the funding is to allow an individual educator to develop the project; longer-term research projects will not normally be funded but successful innovation projects may lead on to future research work.

Statement from our Chair regarding Covid-19
and ASME events

Desperate times call for desperate measures and so it was with great sadness that the Board of Directors made the decision to postpone our ASM planned for July 2020 in Liverpool and several other events/meetings. Our next ASM will now take place in 2021, details of date and venue will follow.

We envisaged that large gatherings of people would be unsafe and of course wanted to do our bit to reduce the transmission of Covid-19. Many of our membership will be increasing their clinical duties and for those involved in transferring curricula online life has been very hectic. We want to support our members, healthcare professionals and educators who are providing front-line NHS services and training students to do so. 

A big thank you to all our ASME members who are involved on the frontline as key workers during the Covid-19 pandemic - we appreciate all you do and hope that you stay safe.
