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.

In order to be eligible to enter, candidates must be:

An individual ASME member

One of the below:
A medical educator still in training, such as a clinical teaching fellow, a doctor or other healthcare professional with a formal educational role, or a trainee who teaches medical students.
A health professions educator who does not hold a substantive post.
A basic scientist who teaches health professions students but does not hold a substantive post.
This list is not exhaustive. If you are unsure about eligibility please email [email protected]

Potential mentors should not be within the applicant's geographical region and should demonstrate a degree of cross boundary (specialty or profession for example) collaboration.
