The ASME Board introduced a new award in 2020 - the Board Award, to extend and complement the existing awards offered to our members. The aim of this award is to fund one high quality research project per year, up to the value of £20,000, which is strongly aligned to ASME’s strategic priorities.  The Board believe this size of award will provide a ‘next step’ for ASME members who have held smaller awards previously.  Each year, we will highlight the strategic priorities that we would particularly welcome applications on, to support the Board to advance scholarship in medical education.  For 2021 we welcomed projects with a focus on support and wellbeing; or preparing learners for online patient consultations. In addition, for 2021 only, we will fund a second Board award, to support the development and dissemination of practical and scalable tools to enable medical schools to better meet the challenge of supporting the ‘Covid19...
