Group Innovation Prize
The Junior Association for the Study of Medical Education (JASME) is a career group within ASME for medical students. One of its key goals is to encourage, promote and conduct medical education research initiated by students and early career professionals. One of the most important elements of this research is collaboration. Therefore we are pleased to offer one award each year to a group of medical students and doctors for innovation in the field of medical education. The awards are to encourage and reward early career medical educators, including students and early career professionals, who show imagination and enthusiasm for developing new ideas in medical teaching or education.
JASME is pleased to award one cash prize to award a group who has already undertaken a project or piece or work surrounding an innovative and original idea within medical education.
Applicants should submit a description of their work, detailing:
-How and why the innovation has been implemented
-How this has changed educational practice
-In addition to these requirements, applicants should also submit a statement of participation, detailing their involvement with the project. Only with sufficient involvement in the project will they be considered a part of the group.
-Applications should include reference to wider education theory and research. Higher scoring applications are highly innovative and provide evidence showing how the innovation will be sustained in future years. The work should not have been previously funded by ASME or JASME.
The winner will be invited to present their work at the TASME Spring Conference. We also encourage you to submit your work in the Call for Abstracts process for the 2021 ASME Annual Scholarship Meeting
