JASME Local Rep of the Year

Haider Merchant JASME Local Rep of the Year 2021

Written by Haider Merchant, JASME.                   Haider Merchant Twitter: @HaiderMerchant3 It was through my developing love of Medical Education that I decided to become a Local Representative for JASME. Having previously completed an intercalated Masters degree in Clinical Education at the University of Exeter, I was exposed to the variety of opportunities Medical Education had to offer (e.g. Research, Assessments, Technology Enhanced Learning). I soon realised that teaching was merely one branch of the tree that is Medical Education. The JASME Local Representative role, therefore, afforded me with the opportunity to showcase the breadth and variety of opportunities that Medical Education has to offer medical students and foundation year one doctors. During my time as a JASME Local Representative, I particularly enjoyed working with students in my cluster group (Exeter, Plymouth, and Cardiff) to organise Medical Education events in our region. I was also...

Researching Medical Education Conference (RME2021): member spotlight

Researching Medical Education is a one-day conference for all those interested in medical and clinical education research. The conference is designed and run by the Association for the Study of Medical Education’s Education Research Committee. This year's theme of agility and flexibility reflects important characteristics of successful clinical education research at any time, not just during a global pandemic. The process of research rarely goes completely to plan and can be influenced by factors beyond the researcher's control. RME 2021 presents an opportunity to share and discuss research approaches that allow for adaptation and to consider the practical and ethical implications of maintaining flexibility in research. In the run-up to RME 2021, our events team interviews some of the ASME members who will be attending the event, to help you to get to know some of the delegates and what they have to say about RME.   Member Spotlight 1: Dr Eliot Rees...

Quality Improvement in medical education: what is it and why is it important?

wd

Written by Will Doherty, an Academic FY1 at Manchester Royal Infirmary. Will is on the Communications subteam of JASME (Junior Association for the Study of Medical Education).   William Doherty Twitter: @wj_doherty Quality improvement (QI) is an often-nebulous concept which eludes the understanding of medical students. It is a model frequently taught at medical schools with limited success. My first real experience of QI came during my fourth year at university when I was thrown in at the deep end of a data-based clinical audit. With no prior experience and a very limited understanding of QI principles, I found myself in the driving seat of this project. I was set the task of finding a group of clinical standards and collecting departmental data to compare against these. Which clinical standards were relevant? How do I go about collecting data? These questions troubled me as I took on this project. When in...
