You are invited to submit abstracts of papers concerned with research, new concepts in undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing medical and healthcare education, and evaluated educational development for the Annual Scholarship Meeting. One of ASME’s goals is to foster and promote high quality education research and scholarship and the ASM is an important mechanism in this programme.
This year’s theme is “Disrupting Medical Education” and so innovation and cutting edge ideas are welcome.
There are some changes this year so please read carefully.
1 – Prestigious Oral Presentation
The oral presentations are prestigious opportunities for educational scholars to have 20 minutes to present established research or embedded educational innovations that have been formally evaluated. Afterwards there will be 10 minutes for questions and a short chaired audience discussion. Selection for these presentations will be competitive, assessed according to markers of educational research quality and/or educational development as outlined below, themed, and few in number. The overall best presenter will be invited to contribute an extended abstract of their work to our next newsletter.
2 – Parallel Oral Presentation
This section is for new ideas and researchers wishing to have a forum to present their work in parallel and receive feedback during the session. The standard format will be to allow 10 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for comments, questions 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.
3 – Ultra Short Communications
This section is for very rapid communication of emerging concepts, radical innovations or medical educational disasters! This could be the best format if you would normally submit an abstract for a traditional poster presentation or where work is possibly in progress. Each presentation will be on a SINGLE SLIDE and have a time slot of 5 minutes maximum, 3 mins presentation + 2 mins discussion during a programmed chaired session. If your submission is accepted, you will be required to submit your A4 slide prior to the conference and the slides will be put together in a loop for sharing with delegates both prior to and during the conference.
4 – e-Posters
e-Poster presentations are invited for research and innovations that are better presented in this format where the presenter has the opportunity to technologically interact with their material. Presenters of papers accepted as e-Posters are expected to deliver their poster(s) during the programmed chaired poster session. (3 minutes presentation time and 2 minutes for comments and feedback) Where submitters have more than one e-Poster accepted we would advise that either a co-author presents your other paper(s) or you indicate which of your posters you will present in the session.
If your abstract submission is successful then you will be invited via email to create your ePoster which will be collected and presented using the Morressier platform. Your ePoster will be a living resource. As well as presenting your ePoster at the conference itself you will also be able to share your work before the conference with delegates. After the conference your work will be shared online to keep the scholarly exchange ongoing. Here you can find technical details how to create your ePoster: https://support.morressier.com/en/articles/2059368-poster-guidelines-portrait-orientation
Full instructions on format etc. will be sent in due course to all successful applicants.
Authors should clearly indicate which presentation format they prefer and whether they would accept an alternative format if unsuccessful with an oral presentation format, for example an ultra short communication. It is anticipated that unsuccessful prestigious oral presentation submissions of a good standard may be offered a parallel oral presentation
For ASM 2020 you can submit your abstract in two different formats – written or video.
This method will involve providing the background, methodology, results and discussion in written format on the ASM 2020 abstract form.
This method will involve providing a 100 word description of your abstract and providing a 2 minute video abstract outlining the background, methodology, results and discussion of your research.

Please view the video below for more information on creating an interesting abstract
Quoted references in the paper cited in the abstract should be listed at the end, and the Vancouver reference style should be followed. Assessors will judge submitted abstracts on the following criteria:
The ASM organising group may vary formats to create themed sessions which will allow for more discussion of papers that address similar issues.
Abstracts of all accepted presentations will appear in the conference papers for the ASM on our website in the lead up to the conference and via the conference app.
ASM certificates will be provided to delegates within 30 working days from end of conference.
We wish to encourage you to submit abstracts from a broad remit that represents all of your work and interests but also encourages you to consider being disruptive. Please indicate the most appropriate category or tick other and specify, thank you.
