The Junior Association for the Study of Medical Education (JASME) is a career group within ASME for medical students and junior doctors. One of its key goals is to encourage, promote and conduct medical education research initiated by students. Therefore we are pleased to offer one award each year to a Foundation Doctor for innovation in the field of medical education. The awards are to encourage and reward individuals who show imagination and enthusiasm for developing new ideas in medical teaching or education.
JASME is pleased to award up to two cash prizes to Foundation Year doctors who have undertaken a project or piece of work surrounding an original and innovative idea within medical education.
Applicants should submit a description of their work, detailing:
- How and why the innovation has been implemented
- How this has changed educational practice.
Applications should include reference to wider education theory and research. Higher scoring applications are highly innovative and provide evidence showing how the innovation will be sustained in future years. The work should not have been previously funded by ASME or JASME.
The winner will be invited to present their work at the TASME Spring Conference. Exceptional entries will be encouraged to submit their work for presentation at the ASME Annual Scientific Meeting.
