The Junior Association for the Study of Medical Education (JASME) is a career group within ASME for medical students. One of its key goals is to encourage, promote and conduct medical education research initiated by students and early career professionals. One of the most important elements of this research is collaboration. Therefore, we are pleased to offer one award each year to a group of medical students and doctors for innovation in the field of medical education. Applications were welcome from groups of members who had already undertaken a project or piece or work surrounding an innovative and original idea within medical education.

JASME Local Rep of the Year

Haider Merchant JASME Local Rep of the Year 2021

Written by Haider Merchant, JASME.                   Haider Merchant Twitter: @HaiderMerchant3 It was through my developing love of Medical Education that I decided to become a Local Representative for JASME. Having previously completed an intercalated Masters degree in Clinical Education at the University of Exeter, I was exposed to the variety of opportunities Medical Education had to offer (e.g. Research, Assessments, Technology Enhanced Learning).

It is a model frequently taught at medical schools with limited success. My first real experience of QI came during my fourth year at university when I was thrown in at the deep end of a data-based clinical audit. With no prior experience and a very limited understanding of QI principles, I found myself in the driving seat of this project. I was set the task of finding a group of clinical standards and collecting departmental data to compare against these. Which clinical standards were relevant? How do I go about collecting data? These questions troubled me as I took on this project. When in...
