1. What does ASME mean by an award?

We use “awards” as an overarching term, to include grants (which typically fund a project) and prizes (which are usually to recognise an achievement). Through the awards, ASME recognises educational achievements that may not be high profile within home institutions, helps to develop individual educators in their scholarship activities, and enables members to undertake activities and access networks that they might not otherwise be able to.

Some of the awards activities may lead to publications which may be published in the ASME journals (Medical Education and The Clinical Teacher).
