ASME Institutional ‘Commitment to Scholarship’ Award


            ASME’s mission is to Advance Scholarship in Medical Education.  Many of our awards have supported individuals to achieve excellence in medical education but, of course, the organisation in which the individual is embedded can make a huge difference to their ability to achieve this excellence.  Therefore, we are delighted to introduce the ASME Institutional ‘Commitment to Scholarship’ Award. This award is a non-monetary prize awarded to an institution that is a member of ASME and claims exceptional commitment to ‘Advancing Scholarship in Medical Education’ (i.e. research, evaluation, innovation, practitioner inquiry), including translation of medical education ‘evidence’ into policy or practice.

Published abstracts from our postponed Annual Scholarship Meeting 2020

ASM 2020 TCT Supplement image

  Congratulations to all our abstract authors from the postponed ASM 2020 “Disrupting Medical Education” in getting their work published in a special supplement of the October edition of The Clinical Teacher (TCT).  As we reported in our June newsletter, ASME made the decision to publish all the accepted abstracts in the supplement even though the conference was postponed.  It was important that all the hard work from not only the authors and researchers, but the abstract reviewers had not gone to waste and was recognised. All the abstracts are compiled under the relevant theme within the supplement.  It includes all accepted abstracts for prestigious presentations, oral presentations, short communications and e-posters.  Not only that, but a first for ASME and possibly for any conference proceedings, the video abstracts have also been incorporated into the TCT supplement.  As this is an online journal, just click on the relevant abstract and the video...
