- Describe the teaching or other educational activity for which you would like to be considered for this award. Be specific about your own involvement from conception to delivery. Please use the shortlist scoring criteria to guide your answer.

- Summarise any feedback you have gained from learners, peers or supervisors regarding this educational practice, and how this has influenced your progression in medical education.

Eligible applications will be assessed by the TASME Prizes and Awards panel on the basis of demonstrating:
- Innovative thinking and activity in medical education
- Talent and skill in teaching or other educational activity
- Insight into the issues pertinent to their area of medical education (e.g. undergraduate, post-graduate, specific issues in certain clinical settings or disciplines)
- Passion, commitment and engagement with wider teams and institutions (e.g. medical school, hospital, deanery)
- Sustainable, lasting change of educational practice at a personal level or within the institution in which they have been teaching
Applications will be independently scored by three independent markers according to the above scoring criteria, with a final numerical score assigned, and comments gathered and fed back to candidates.
The highest scoring candidates will be invited to present at the ASME ASM. Successful applicants will be informed by 25th April 2022 and will need to register to attend ASME’s ASM in July to proceed to the finals.
Successful finalists will be invited to competitively present their work during the ASME ASM, which will be advertised to attract a wide audience of delegates. Candidates will be given ten minutes for their presentation. This time can be used to demonstrate skills in any suitable method, such as a presentation, a teaching session or demonstration of resources. Multimedia technology may be used, although if specialist equipment is required this should be negotiated in advance. There will be five minutes for questions from the panel and audience. The panel of judges will assess the presenters on:
- Demonstration of innovation
- Evidence of excellent educational practice
- Relevance and inspiration for wider population, in particular other trainees
- Evidence of sustainability
- Presentation style
The winner, plus first and second runners up, will be announced at the end of the session.
- Registration fee for the ASM 2022 for 1 person will be refunded to the winner after the conference has ended
- Certificate (issued after the conference)
- Name engraved on the TIE Prize Shield (after the conference)
