The Junior Association for the Study of Medical Education (JASME) is a career group within ASME for medical students. One of its key goals is to encourage, promote and conduct medical education research initiated by students and early career professionals. One of the most important elements of this research is collaboration. Therefore, we are pleased to offer one award each year to a group of medical students and doctors for innovation in the field of medical education.
Applications were welcome from groups of members who had already undertaken a project or piece or work surrounding an innovative and original idea within medical education. Applicants were to submit a description of their work and address how and why the innovation has been implemented, and how this has changed educational practice.
Our 2022 winners are Isaac Jarratt Barnham, Máté Nászai, Max Williamson and Patrick Kratschmer; all 3rd Year Graduate-Entry Medical Students at Oxford University, with their submission:
A multi-Year Evaluation of an Innovative, Video-Based Resource Addressing Inequalities in Basic Science Knowledge amongst Graduate Entry Medical Students
|LtoR: Isaac, Max, Máté, Patrick|
“We are thrilled to receive this award from ASME for our work seeking to ensure equality of educational opportunities for new Graduate-Entry medical students! We believe medical school should be accessible to all, regardless of background, and that our project offers an innovative approach to achieving this. We would like to thank the Oxford University staff who have been so supportive of our work.”
The winners have been invited to present their work at the TASME Spring Conference 2022,
