Applications open for Medical Council – INMED Research in Medical Education (RIME) Awards

Applications for the 2019 INMED Research in Medical Education (RIME) awards are now open.

The awards, which are jointly funded by the Medical Council and the Irish Network of Medical Educators (INMED), will promote research that seeks to answer questions of national and international importance, while contributing to the knowledge-base for Irish medical education and training. Three awards of €6,000 investigating the continuum of medical education will be granted.

To guide applicants, a number of indicative themes have been included, which reflect the policy needs of the Medical Council.

These include:

  • Teaching, Learning and Assessing Professionalism
  • Professional Identity Formation
  • Inter-professional Learning
  • Workplace Learning and Culture
  • Resilience and well- being in students and the workforce
  • Transitions in medical education

Applications which focus on an area outside of the thematic areas outlined above will be considered eligible where the applicant presents a compelling and justifiable case for how the project possesses strong potential to impact on policy and/or practice in medical education and training in Ireland.

Full details of the application process can be found on the INMED website.
