The Junior Association for the Study of Medical Education (JASME) is a career group within ASME for medical students and Foundation Year doctors. One of its key goals is to encourage, promote and conduct medical education research initiated by students and junior doctors. The Sir John Ellis Student Prize is an established and highly regarded national prize for new student work on a topic within medical education.
We are pleased to announce the recipient of the 2021 prize is Anna Harvey, King’s College London with their submission What does success mean to medical students who identify as widening participation? An informal stakeholder scoping study and narrative review
I am thrilled to be awarded the 2021 Sir John Ellis prize. I have admired ASME’s significant work engaging junior researchers with excellent clinical education scholarship for a number of years and it’s great to receive feedback on my work from members. I hope to continue to look at how we can move towards a more holistic approach to measuring and conceptualizing success for medical students and trainee doctors during my academic foundation post at Newcastle University. Thank you to my supervisor, Dr Alison Steadman, and to the team at the MedEd Research Collaborative who encouraged me to enter my work for this prize. So looking forward to presenting at the ASM!
We look forward to Anna presenting at the Annual Scholarship Meeting 8-9 July 2021.
