INMED Annual Scientific Meeting

Following on from the highly successful meeting hosted last year by UCD, the Irish Network of Medical Educators (INMED) hold their 7th Annual Scientific Meeting at Queen's University Belfast from the 19th - 21st February 2014. Further details available from the INMED website.

INMED is a voluntary group of healthcare education professionals in Ireland and includes members from all Irish medical schools and training bodies, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

INMED Newsletter

INMED are preparing to re-launch their newsletter and would like to hear from you.

  • Are there interesting and important lines of research that you would like to publicise and perhaps locate collaborators for?
  • Are there innovations in our undergraduate or postgraduate programmes that you would like to publicise and share best practice?
  • Have you won an award or achieved international acclaim in some form?
  • Have you visited another institution and have some insights to share?

If you have a news item, event or new innovation that you would like to publicise across the INMED network, send a brief description (between 2 and 400 words with photographs if you have them) to carol.lynch@ucd.ie before Thursday, 6th February 2014

INMED Bursaries

INMED are also inviting applications from healthcare educators of all disciplines and from undergraduate students for small educational research and travel grants.

Research Bursaries

The maximum award per individual or project will be €1,500 or equivalent (bids for smaller amounts of funding will of course be considered). As the purpose of these small research grants is to support research and innovation in healthcare education, only grants that meet the grant criteria will be accepted. 

Travel Grant Scheme

Applicants may apply for grants of up to €1000 (or equivalent) to support travel and/or registration costs associated with healthcare education conferences, training, events or visits to host institutions for the purposes of furthering educational research collaboration.  Up to two awards are available annually.
