What is TASME?  


Many trainees enjoy teaching, but getting involved and staying involved in medical education as a busy junior can be difficult. TASME (Trainees in the Association for the Study of Medical Education) is a Career Group of ASME that aims to support trainee involvement in teaching. It is run by a committee of trainees from a number of specialties, with the support of the ASME Board of Directors.

TASME was formed to provide a platform for trainees to share ideas and experiences within medical education. An initial scoping meeting took place at the 2011 Annual Scientific Meeting and since then the initial exec have worked to establish a terms of reference and business plan.

This group is open to members of ASME.  For more information on joining ASME, please click HERE

TASME is designed to benefit trainees with an interest in medical education (be it teaching or research) through the following aims:

  • To foster an interest in medical education amongst juniors through activities, events and discussion that support trainee involvement in medical education
  • To influence medical education policy and practice through representation within ASME
  • To encourage and promote good practice by developing systematic training in medical education and research
  • To create a forum for trainees to exchange viewpoints and experiences of medical education and discuss their role within it
  • To encourage, promote and conduct medical education research initiated by trainees
  • To promote on-going involvement in teaching throughout training and careers in medical education

Statement from our Chair regarding Covid-19
and ASME events

Desperate times call for desperate measures and so it was with great sadness that the Board of Directors made the decision to postpone our ASM planned for July 2020 in Liverpool and several other events/meetings. Our next ASM will now take place in 2021, details of date and venue will follow.

We envisaged that large gatherings of people would be unsafe and of course wanted to do our bit to reduce the transmission of Covid-19. Many of our membership will be increasing their clinical duties and for those involved in transferring curricula online life has been very hectic. We want to support our members, healthcare professionals and educators who are providing front-line NHS services and training students to do so. 

A big thank you to all our ASME members who are involved on the frontline as key workers during the Covid-19 pandemic - we appreciate all you do and hope that you stay safe.
