ASME Clinical Teacher Award
The Clinical Teacher

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Clinical Teacher, the Association for the Study of Medical Education (ASME) and Wiley are delighted to announce the launch of a new award, the Anniversary Award.

As a journal that encourages the advancement of early career academics, we are committed to achieving impact through collaboration in research and scholarship.  This award is a new initiative to support researchers in collaborative projects that develop and strengthen networks, and lead to excellence in output. 

The purpose of the 20th Anniversary award is to provide financial support (up to £3000) to an individual to gain further experience and understanding of the field of clinical teaching and learning to visit an educational or healthcare institution for their own professional and personal development.  This will provide opportunities such as meeting experts in the field, sharing knowledge with the host institution, and undertaking some form of project, which can be either research, scholarship, educator development or evaluation. It is expected the funded award will evolve into a completed project and scholarship outcome, such as a joint publication submitted to The Clinical Teacher, grant application, or conference presentation.
