ASME’s Educator Development Committee (EDC) seeks to support and promote the personal and professional development of healthcare educators of all disciplines and to disseminate good practice in medical education.

The ASME EDC Education Innovation Awards have been developed to highlight, promote and disseminate examples of innovative educational practice in healthcare professionals’ education. The value of this award is up to a maximum of £1,000 towards professional development expenses and one free registration for the ASME ASM.

The ASME EDC Education Innovation Awards are aimed at providing funding for an individual educator or team of educators to develop an educational innovation that demonstrates originality, is of practical significance, is applicable to educators in other centres and which may fill a gap in pedagogy.

We are pleased to announce our 2022 Winners:

Dr Helen Anne Nolan, Warwick Medical School, Developing Student Quality Reviewers- a collaborative approach to promoting transferable leadership skills in healthcare students

“I am honoured and delighted to have been selected by ASME’s Educator Development Committee to receive the Education Innovation Award. I am grateful for ASME’s recognition and support in developing student roles in quality assurance and enhancement of medical education. We have already experienced tremendous benefits from working with students in quality enhancement activities. I look forward to developing this initiative further and to supporting students’ development of key leadership skills for future professional practice.” @nolan_helen & @warwickmed

Dr Agalya Ramnathan, Imperial College London, Developing immersive videos to help early-year students feel psychologically prepared  for primary care placements

“Winning this award means that, as a team, we can go onto purchase a 360 camera for the use of medical education projects, for example this specific one involving designing videos intended to help early years’ students prepare for their primary care placements, but also for future projects as well. I am really grateful for this award and believe we will put it to good use.” @AgalyaRamanath1 & @Imperial_MEdIC
