The annual scientific meeting of the Association of the Study of Medical Education (ASME) took place 15-17 July 2015 at Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium. MEDU staff and students contributed to panels on professionalism, selection, teaching & learning and TEL.

The following short communications were presented by members of the unit:

In the panel on Selection on Thursday:

  • How do medical school applicants respond to the requirement for 'work experience'?  An exploration of 'going abroad' by Stephen Collins and Anja Timm

In the Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) panel on Friday:

In addition there were four posters from Southampton, which were presented during the chaired poster session on Friday morning:

  • Ben Marshall and Shelley Parr: "10 year review of the Graduate entry course at the University of Southampton - the BM4 experience"
  •  Susie Rebelo Hopkins and Sally Curtis: "Improving undergraduate medical students' perceptions of and performance in numeracy skills with peer teaching and online formative assessments"
  •  Claire Eickhoff, Louise Dubras and Deborah Rose: "Does working as a Healthcare Support Worker in year 2 make a difference to how medical students adapt to working and learning on wards when they enter year 3?"
  •  Anja Timm and Siobhan Lynch: "Catching them early?  Using a pre-arrival task to encourage first year students' engagement with professionalism"

MEDU colleagues were joined by two medical students who conducted their fourth year projects in medical education.  Claire von Eickhoff and Stephen Collins not only presented their work at ASME, they have also written a short report on the conference, which will appear in the winter addition of the MEDU newsletter, Facilitator.

Notes for editors

An abstract entitled "Developing a sense of professionalism in widening access students" by Sally Curtis and Jeremy Rowland was accepted as a short communication, but could not be delivered due to unforeseen circumstances.
