ASME / GMC Excellent Medical Education Awards 2018
We are pleased to be able to offer another opportunity to fund a GMC/ASME project that relates to Continuing Professional Development.
Deadline for applications will be: noon, Monday 18th June 2018
The “Excellent Medical Education” Programme is a set of national prizes established jointly by ASME and the GMC for the first time in 2015 and they are intended to fund high-quality medical education research, development and innovation.
This is in response to recognition of the need for further research-based evidence related to medical education and training, through supporting capacity building and increasing the volume of high-quality medical education research. Applications using quantitative or qualitative, established or innovative methods will be welcome.
All ASME members who are based in the UK will be eligible to apply, provided their organisation is capable of fulfilling the role of a research sponsor (e.g. an NHS organisation, academic institution). The deadline for 2018 for CPD applications only will be noon, 18 June 2018
Applications up to the value of £5,000 and up to 12 months in duration will be considered. FEC, HEI and NHS Indirect Costs, and NHS Treatment costs will not be supported.
One prize will be available, linked to the CPD stage of medical education. The programme is intended to support research which is related to the innovation, development, implementation and sustainability of excellent medical education which has an impact at either the individual (medical students, doctors in training, SAS doctors and consultants, and/or patients) or systems level (e.g. informing or leading to organisational change).
Applications will be assessed against the following criteria:
· Evidence that the project links directly with GMC education priorities
· Clarity as to the aims and objectives of the work
· Coherence between the aims and objectives, and the approach or methods used to measure and/or report outcomes
· Demonstrated outcomes/outputs for medical students, doctors, education and training programmes, including identification of key drivers for success/failure. Potential trajectory to patient benefit will also be considered as an outcome criterion.
· Targets/outcomes, and if reached/achieved
· Evaluation of process as well as outcome(s) (i.e. why it worked as well as "it worked")
· Evidence as to whether or not the work has maintained momentum, or details of how successful candidates would use the prize funding to further extend the project.
