Celebrating Black History Month at ASME

By Yvonne Mbaki - Honorary Secretary, Lead for Diversity and Inclusion “I am, because we are” (Ubuntu)    Recent global events have meant that as a society, we have a greater awareness of our differences. Reflecting on the ASM conference in the summer, conversations on equality diversity and inclusion (EDI) featured significantly, and in continuing with this theme, we would like to progress these conversations into the month of October as we celebrate Black History Month.

Researching Medical Education Conference (RME2021): member spotlight

Eliot Rees headshot
Researching Medical Education is a one-day conference for all those interested in medical and clinical education research. The conference is designed and run by the Association for the Study of Medical Education’s Education Research Committee. This year's theme of agility and flexibility reflects important characteristics of successful clinical education research at any time, not just during a global pandemic. The process of research rarely goes completely to plan and can be influenced by factors beyond the researcher's control. RME 2021 presents an opportunity to share and discuss research approaches that allow for adaptation and to consider the practical and ethical implications of maintaining flexibility in research. In the run-up to RME 2021, our events team interviews some of the ASME members who will be attending the event, to help you to get to know some of the delegates and what they have to say about RME.   Member Spotlight 1: Dr Eliot Rees...
