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. We offer one award each year to medical students for innovation in the field of medical education. The awards are to encourage and reward students who show imagination and enthusiasm for developing new ideas in medical teaching or education.
Student Innovation Prize Applicants were asked to submit a description of their work, detailing how and why the innovation has been implemented and how this has changed educational practice.
We are pleased to announce the recipient of the 2021 prize is Charles Taylor, Queen Mary’s University of London with their submission The efficacy of Interdisciplinary Near-Peer Teaching within neuroanatomical education – a pilot study
‘I am thrilled and honoured to have been awarded the JASME Student Innovation Prize. I take great pride in my research and I am fascinated by disruptive medical pedagogy so to receive such an award is wonderful. I would like to thank Dr Scott Border and the Soton Brain Hub team for assisting my research and for running the brilliant Southampton Near Peer Teaching Network.’
Charles will be invited to present their work at the TASME Spring Conference.
