The Association for the Study of Medical Education (ASME) and Wiley-Blackwell have identified funding of up to £2,000 for Medical Education to support a 2015 Travelling Fellowship. The aim of the Fellowship is to provide financial support to an individual or a research group to facilitate gaining further experience/training/knowledge that will enable strengthening of health professional education research efforts. The individual or team must demonstrate commitment to a particular project and clearly indicate how the activities supported by the Travelling Fellowship will enhance the capacity to engage in conceptually grounded, methodologically rigorous, and programmatic research efforts. Among other things, the Fellowship may be used to enable visiting an institution or research group in furtherance of the individual’s own professional and personal development and collaborative opportunities or to bring a scholar to the team in furtherance of the group’s and research project’s development.
To apply for a Medical Education Travelling Fellowship, applicants are asked to submit a proposal outlining the purpose for which they would use the Fellowship. The submission should be written in English and must not exceed 1,000 words in length. One entry per applicant is permitted.
The proposal should be accompanied by:
- A completed application form (available on the Medical Education home page: visit www.mededuc.comand then click ‘read’)
- A brief curriculum vitae (maximum of two pages)
- A letter of support from the applicant’s supervisor, Director of Education, etc. (if appropriate)
- Confirmation of acceptance by the institution/centre(s) to be visited, should the application be successful.
