ASME Announces Recipients of its 6th PhD / Doctoral Grant
The Association for the Study of Medical Education (ASME) has revealed the recipient of its 6th funded ASME PhD / Doctoral Grant.
The winning PhD project is entitled “Feedback conversations that improve prescribing practices: a sociomaterial study in the UK and Australia”. Recruitment for the student will commence shortly and once appointed, the student will spend time collecting data in both countries, in order to compare feedback practices and health systems.
The supervisory team has an international flavour too, comprising Christy Noble, Clinical Learning and Assessment Lead, The University of Queensland, Australia; Rola Ajjawi, Professor of Education Research, Deakin University, Australia; Richard Conn, Interim Clinical Senior Lecturer, Ulster University; and Karen Mattick, Professor of Medical Education, University of Exeter.
ASME Director of Award, Michael Page, said: “We are delighted to announce the award of our sixth PhD studentship. The PhD awards represent a major investment by ASME in developing high quality medical education research by enabling talented medical education scholars to take the next step in their academic development. We are proud to support Professor Karen Mattick and her team with their PhD entitled, “Feedback conversations that improve prescribing practices: a sociomaterial study in the UK and Australia.”
The chosen student will receive a stipend, as well as support with the cost of consumables required for the research. ASME will also cover the registration fee to present the work at future Annual Scholarship Meetings. A member of the supervisory team will be invited to present at the Celebrating Success – ASME Honours event in September 2023. The appointed student will also present at the ASM 2024.
