The Educator Development Committee (EDC) of ASME seeks to support and promote the professional development of healthcare educators and to disseminate good practice in medical education.
The ASME EDC Educator Development Awards are aimed at providing funding for an individual to further develop themselves as an educator. Options include (but are not limited to) travel to visit a host institution to gain experience in a specific type of teaching, travel to events or conferences, attendance at relevant courses or undertaking a specific educational development in a home institution. In allocating awards, the EDC will take account of the professional development of the individual and will specifically target those who are at an early or mid-stage of their career and where other sources of funding are unlikely to be available. Research projects will not normally be funded, nor will applications to register on certificate, diploma or masters courses.
