MORE INFORMATION SOON
#asme2023: Developing a Diverse Workforce
12-14 July 2023
Eastside Rooms, Birmingham
Call for Abstracts (Oral and E-Poster)
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 2 categories of presentation.
1 - Oral 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.
2 – E-Poster Presentation
E-poster presentations are invited for research and innovations that have not been developed to the completeness required for oral presentation. Presenters of papers accepted as e-poster are expected to speak about their e-poster(s) during the programmed chaired e-poster session. 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 e-posters you will present in the session. E-poster competitions will be held and you will be given the option to indicate whether or not you wish to be included in the competitions.
If your e-poster is accepted your full instructions on format etc. will be sent at this time.
All abstracts will be included in ASME’s 2023 ASM abstracts book and in the supplement of The Clinical Teacher, which will be published in late 2023.
Guidelines for submissions:
- Submissions may address issues of concern/development at all stages of medical and healthcare education
- The abstract should indicate the main conclusions of the paper
- The abstract should not be more than 250 words in length (excluding title, authors and references)
- Whilst we recognise that members may wish to submit abstracts on work in progress, as part of the scoring process, assessors will take into account whether results are included within the abstract
- The assessors may consider your paper to be worthy of inclusion in The Educator Development Committee “Innovative, interesting and prize winning work”. This session will be a showcase for innovations in learning and teaching in medical education. If this is the case you will be informed and given the option to accept or not.
- There will also be an option to have your submission considered for the Special Interest Group Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) parallel session and e-poster session, which explore TEL activity in medical education. Please use the correct selection on the abstract submission form to indicate your preferences in the Abstract Theme field
