ADMSEP Scholarly Publication Award - Call for Nominations

Hello ADMSEP Members,

The ADMSEP Scholarly Publication Award seeks to recognize the most outstanding UME-focused publication by an ADMSEP member over the past year. The Awards Committee has searched Academic Psychiatry, MedEdPORTAL, and Medical Teacher for publications and have already identified a number of publications for consideration.

If you have published between March 2023 and March 2024 in another journal (or would like to confirm consideration of your article in the aforementioned journals), please contact me with the citation for your publication.

Thank you,

Chase Findley

This is an ideal time to let ADMSEP members know how thankful you are, and then to demonstrate your gratitude by nominating them for an ADMSEP award!
