The theme for our Annual Scholarship Meeting 2024 is ‘Your Key to Maximising Potential’. Join us for an enlightening conference that will explore innovative research and good practices to unlock the full potential of health professions scholarship and research. Engage with renowned educators, healthcare professionals, and researchers as we delve into cutting-edge approaches, technologies, and pedagogies. Discover how to empower the next generation of healthcare leaders, optimize curriculum design, and promote lifelong learning. Whether you’re an educator, student, or healthcare practitioner, this conference promises valuable insights to enhance the quality and impact of health education, ultimately elevating patient care and advancing the field of medicine.
You are invited to submit abstracts of papers concerned with research and new concepts in undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing medical and healthcare education, for the Annual Scholarship Meeting. One of ASME’s goals is to foster and promote high-quality education research and the ASM is an important mechanism in this programme. There are 3 categories of presentation.
This section is for new ideas and researchers wishing to have a forum to present their work in a parallel session and receive feedback during the session. The standard format will be to allow 10 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for comments and feedback. This section will be limited both by quality standards, but also time available, and the assessment panel will award the presentation slots to those submissions of the highest quality.
Our ‘What’s your point?’ sessions are short presentations on a topic of interest or debate. Think soapbox, or speaker’s corner, and don’t be afraid to challenge thinking.
- ‘What’s your point?’ presentations are 10 minutes, followed by 5 minutes of questions
- A maximum of 2 presenters are permitted
- Slides are permitted but we urge you to think creatively when using visual aids
- You should choose topics that will spark interest and debate
This submission type is not suitable for research presentations
We invite you to submit an abstract for presentation in our Compact Comms sessions which are for research and innovations that have not been developed to the completeness required for oral presentation. Presenters of papers accepted as Compact Comms are expected to speak about their slide(s) for 3 minutes during the programmed chaired Compact Comms session with 3 minutes for question and change over at the end. Where submitters have more than one compact comms accepted we would advise that either a co-author presents your other paper(s) or you indicate which of your Compact Comms you will present in the session. If your Compact Comms is accepted your full instructions on format etc. will be sent at this time.
