The Medical Education Award Feb23 v2

ASME and Wiley are pleased to announce the winners of the Medical Education Developing Scholarship Award for 2023 which will provide funding of up to £2,000 to support an individual or a research group.

The aim of the Medical Education Developing Scholarship Award is to enable an individual or a research group to strengthen their contributions to health professions education research. The individual or team must demonstrate how the activities supported by the award will offer long-term enhancement of their capacity to engage in high quality conceptually grounded, methodologically rigorous, and programmatic research efforts such as those prioritised for publication in Medical Education. Applications must show commitment to a specific project and demonstrate how the award will further the applicant’s professional development and opportunities to receive mentorship.

Benefits Offered

  • In addition to the benefits received from engaging in the professional development activity itself, successful applicants will receive:
  • Personalized research development clinics from the editors of Medical Education
  • Registration to and an opportunity to present at the ASME Annual Scholarship Meeting (ASM)
  • Feedback from the editors on any article emanating from the awarded activity
  • £2,000 to support completion of the professional development plan

We are delighted to announce that the recipients of the 2023 Medical Education Development Scholarship Award are Dr Roma Forbes (The University of Queensland), and Dr Alison Pearson, (University of Exeter) for their submission: Internationalising health professions education researcher development: a collective approach in two continents.

“This award is an important step forward in our partnership between UQ, Exeter and ASME to explore how we can establish an international group to support health professional education researchers for successful research cultures and outcomes”.

“The award creates a fantastic opportunity to strengthen the collaborative links between researchers in Queensland and Exeter, and to develop and share insights as we establish networks for those researching health professions education”.

Roma and Alison will be invited to present at the ASME ASM conference – we can’t wait to welcome them and hear more about their work!
