The Junior Association for the Study of Medical Education (JASME) is a career group within ASME for medical students and junior doctors. One of its key goals is to encourage, promote and conduct medical education research initiated by students. One of the prizes we are pleased to offer is one award each year to a Foundation Doctor for innovation in the field of medical education. The award is to encourage and reward individuals who show imagination and enthusiasm for developing new ideas in medical teaching or education. It is open to Foundation Year doctors who have undertaken a project or piece of work surrounding an original and innovative idea within medical education.
We are pleased to announce the recipient of the 2020 prize is Philippa Clery (University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust) and University of Bristol) with their submission Sustainability in Quality Improvement (SusQI) in undergraduate medical education
On hearing the good news, Philippa said I am delighted to have received this award for my work on Sustainability in Quality Improvement (SusQI) at Bristol Medical School. I am passionate about bringing sustainable healthcare into both medical education and clinical practice and this is a great step towards recognition of this topic. A huge thank you to my colleagues for help along the way, especially Kay Leedham-Green @doctorkayleigh, Stuart D’arch Smith @studarch, the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare @SusHealthcare, Rosie Spooner @spooner_rosie, Frances Mortimer @FrancesMortimer, Siobhan Parslow-Williams @PwSiobhan, and Oliver Marsden. Also thank you to Trevor Thompson at Bristol Medical School @MedicalBristol for providing a platform for the teaching.
Philippa will be invited to present their work at the TASME Spring Conference.
