The Association for the Study of Medical Education (ASME) and Wiley have announced funding of up to £2,000 each for Medical Education and The Clinical Teacher to support a 2017 Travelling Fellowship.
The aim of the Medical Education 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 development and collaborative opportunities or to bring a scholar to the team in furtherance of the group’s and research project’s development.
The aim of The Clinical Teacher Fellowship is to provide financial support to an individual to gain further experience and understanding of the field of clinical teaching by visiting an educational or health institution for their own professional and personal development, sharing insights with the host institution, and undertaking some form of project, which may be either a research study or educational development and evaluation.
To apply for either 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 and covering letter
- A brief curriculum vitae (maximum of two pages)
- A letter of support from the applicant’s supervisor
- Confirmation of acceptance by the institution/center(s) to be visited, should the application be successful
Full details, application forms, and guidelines are available online at www.mededuc.com and www.theclinicalteacher.com. Completed applications should be sent no later than January 31, 2017 to the Editorial Managers of Medical Education and The Clinical Teacher, at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, respectively.
