Jun Jie Lim, Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia was chosen as the winner for his submission:

“Exploring the feasibility of virtual, synchronous transnational medical education: A mixed methods study”.

Upon hearing the news Jun Jie said:

“I am humbled to have been awarded the Sir John Ellis Student Prize for a project I co-led as a medical student from the global South, which inspires me to continue advocating for transnational education in health professions and bridge educational gaps among students”.

We look forward to Jun Jie presenting his project at next year’s ASM in Edinburgh. Congratulations Jun Jie!
