Congratulations to Dr Helen Nolan, Warwick Medical School, who was selected for an Education Innovation Award by the ASME’s Educator Development Committee (EDC) who support and promote the personal and professional development of healthcare educators of all disciplines and to disseminate good practice in medical education.

The ASME EDC Education Innovation Awards have been developed to highlight, promote and disseminate examples of innovative educational practice in healthcare professionals’ education. The value of this award is up to a maximum of £1,000 towards professional development expenses and one free registration for the ASME ASM.

The ASME EDC Education Innovation Awards are aimed at providing funding for an educator to develop an educational innovation that demonstrates originality, is of practical significance, is applicable to educators in other centres and which may fill a gap in pedagogy.

Dr Nolan recieved her award for her project proposal 'Developing Student Quality Reviewers- a collaborative approach to promoting transferable leadership skills in healthcare students'

She said: “I am honoured and delighted to have been selected by ASME’s Educator Development Committee to receive the Education Innovation Award. I am grateful for ASME’s recognition and support in developing student roles in quality assurance and enhancement of medical education. We have already experienced tremendous benefits from working with students in quality enhancement activities. I look forward to developing this initiative further and to supporting students’ development of key leadership skills for future professional practice.”
