The Research and Grants Committee is now seeking to add to its panel of assessors

The Research and Grants Committee is now seeking to add to its panel of external assessors

Thursday 6 February 2020

The Research and Grants Committee is now seeking to add to its panel of assessors (up to 6 places available for consultants and trainees) with a clear interest in undergraduate medical education to support them in reviewing and scoring applications for undergraduate awards.

The Association of Anaesthetists makes two types of undergraduate awards – undergraduate elective funding twice per year and the annual Wylie undergraduate essay prize.

In the elective funding rounds, awards of up to £750 are made towards a medical student elective period where preference is given to those applicants who can show the relevance of their intended elective to anaesthesia, intensive care or pain relief. We ask applicants to note our particular interest in projects based in developing countries. The Wylie essay is awarded each year for a 1000-word essay on a topic chosen annually by the Research & Grants Committee.

Elective applications and essays are scored through the online submission system using a defined scoring system with marking guides to ensure consistency.

Interested candidates should apply to secretariat@anaesthetists.org with a covering letter and a personal statement of up to 300 words describing their interest in undergraduate medical education.

The closing date for applications is Friday 17 April 2020.

For further information or an informal discussion please contact Dr Matthew Davies, Chair of the Research and Grants Committee via secretariat@anaesthetists.org
