ANZAHPE Pre-Registration Student Prize (AU$500) sponsored by AMH
The ANZAHPE Pre-Registration Student Prize is awarded to a pre-registration undergraduate student in any of the health care professions, including graduate-entry health professional courses. This prize has been awarded since 1985 (under various names) for an outstanding piece of work by a student in the area of health professional education. Students are invited to apply for the Prize by submitting an item of personal work which might include research conducted, critical reviews, educational materials developed (videos, CDs, websites, models, etc.) or an essay pertaining to education in the health professions. Recipients are invited to present their work at the ANZAHPE conference and may be eligible for financial assistance towards conference attendance.
ANZAHPE Post-Graduate Student Prize in Health Professional Education (AU$500) sponsored by AMH
The ANZAHPE Post-Registration Student Prize was instituted in 2005 in recognition that the student members of ANZAHPE were often full-time post-graduate students performing invaluable research in the area of health professional education. This prize is awarded to a student in a post-graduate health professional course whose course work relates to education in their area of health care. Students are invited to apply for the Award by submitting a description of their research/course work. Recipients are invited to present their work at the ANZAHPE conference and may be eligible for financial assistance towards conference attendance.
ANZAHPE Post-Registration Prize (Clinical Education) sponsored by Richard Hays (AU$500)
The ANZAHPE Student Prize in Clinical Education sponsored by Richard Hays was introduced as a new prize in 2013 and was created to recognise the important work that many students are doing to improve clinical (work-place based) education. The prize is available to a post-registration student in any of the health professional courses for a piece of work in the area of clinical education (research or non-research project). This prize is available for an education project within a clinical environment.
This might include a project in simulation, innovative clinical placements, teaching on the run, etc. Recipients are invited to present their work at the ANZAHPE conference and may be eligible for financial assistance towards conference attendance. ANZAHPE thanks Professor Richard Hays for his generous sponsorship and initiation of this prize.
