If you meet the eligibility criteria, please select that you would like to be considered for the TASME ASM Communication Prize. Then think about how you are going to communicate with skill and creativity. Make sure you are prepared to present your work if this has to be done online.
Eligible applications will be reviewed by the TASME Prizes and Awards team. We aim to invite all eligible applications to present their work at the ASM. However, if the number of applications is too great to allow this, a shortlisting process will be applied. This will be based on the quality of communication demonstrated in the abstract and conducted by two independent reviewers.
All successful applicants will be invited to present at the ASME ASM. They will be informed by Monday 26th April and will need to register and pay to attend ASME’s ASM in July.
Shortlisted applicants will be reviewed at the ASM on the basis of:
- Clarity of message communicated
- Creativity in communication
The winner will be recognised with a certificate, awarded a copy of the textbook Understanding Medical Education and have their project displayed electronically on the TASME ASM Communication Prize web page.
The runners-up will also be provided with a certificate to indicate their achievement after the conference has finished. All finalists will be invited to share the work they presented at intervals over the 12 months following the ASM; they will have the opportunity to hold a Q&A regarding their project on Twitter or write for the ASME newsletter or website.
(Please note certificates and prizes will be distributed after the ASM.)
