TASME Teaching Innovation and Excellence Prize and Mentorship Prize 2022

Teaching Innovation & Excellence (TIE) Prize 2022

Closing Date: 25th March 2022


The prize recognises talent and ingenuity displayed by those embarking on a career in medical education. The prize will be primarily focused on recognising teaching, but consideration will be given to entries that showcase other relevant educational activity.

Candidates will self-nominate through the application process to demonstrate their teaching innovation and excellence. The application will consist of a structured written application form and may be supported by links to other appropriate media (e.g. websites, video or additional materials to help illustrate the innovation). Group applications will be considered, but the input of each individual within the group must be made explicitly clear and only one member of the group will be able to present for the prize if shortlisted.

Applicants may be asked to provide a named supporter (e.g. educational supervisor or mentor) to provide further supporting evidence after shortlisting.

Shortlisted entrants will then be invited to give a ten-minute presentation followed by five minutes of questions at the ASME Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) 6th-8th July 2022 in Aberdeen, to a panel of judges and an audience as part of the TIE Prize session.

TASME Mentorship Prize 2022

Closing Date: 31st March 2022


This award will provide resources for an early career health professions educator to develop a mentorship relationship that will support their development as an educator. It recognises that TASME is not just for trainees, but for all early career health professions educators, be they allied health professionals, clinical scientists, or doctors not in training posts.

Candidates will self-nominate through the application process to demonstrate how they will use the resources to develop a mentoring relationship, and in what way this may benefit their career as a health professions educator. The TASME Mentorship Award is an individual award.

As well as the prize, the winner will be asked to provide a photo of them meeting with their mentor with a caption for the ASME newsletter. The winner will also be asked to share what they have learned with the TASME community. The medium by which this is done is flexible but should be described in the application.
