This prize celebrates creativity and skill in communicating medical education work. It recognises that many embarking on a career in medical education complete small, discrete, but still high-quality work, and that by communicating it with skill, early career educators can have maximum impact from their work. The submitted project can encompass any aspect of medical education, including educational research, teaching activity and innovation. The project can take the form of an e-Poster or short communication.
The TASME ASM Communication Prize evolved from the TASME Poster Prize, reflecting the evolving way in which medical education work is communicated.
The prize is selected from those who submit to the online ASME Annual Scholarship Meeting (ASM) 10th – 12th July 2024.
Applicants for this prize should submit an abstract to the ASM via the abstract submission process and indicate on their submission form that they wish to be included in assessments for this prize.
The winner and runners up will be invited to share their work through one of ASME/TASME’s outlets throughout the year; either by participating in a twitter chat about their research or writing a short piece for the website or newsletter.
Deadline for abstract submissions: Submissions will close at 17.00hrs (GMT) Thursday 25th January 2024. No extensions will be offered.
In order to be eligible to enter, candidates must be:
- An individual ASME member
- One of the below:
- A medical educator still in training, such as a clinical teaching fellow, a doctor or other healthcare professional with a formal educational role, or a trainee who teaches medical students.
- A health professions educator who does not hold a substantive post.
- A basic scientist who teaches health professions students but does not hold a substantive post.
This list is not exhaustive. If you are unsure about eligibility, please email email@example.com
The project abstract must also adhere to the ASME ASM submission guidelines

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 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 as soon as possible after the ASM.)
- 12 noon (GMT) Tuesday 24th January 2023 – deadline for abstract submissions
- 12th – 14th July 2023 (ASME ASM Birmingham) – shortlisted projects will be displayed and judged, with the overall winner announced at the end of the ASM.
- Twitter Q&As will be held throughout the year whenever convenient for the winner and runners-up
