“The National Student Association of Medical Research (NSAMR) is a new, student led initiative aimed at promoting research and academic medicine amongst medical students. The association is a collaborative network composed of research societies throughout the UK which enables the sharing of ideas and resources and provides students with a national voice on issues pertaining to research and academic training.
We strongly believe that students have a lot to contribute in terms of research and that equally, research adds extra depth to undergraduate medical studies. We aim to make more funding available for student research related events and provide opportunities for student involvement in medical research and to reward excellence in student research.”
In July 2014, the first Celebrating Excellence Event will be held at the Heath Campus over three days. All year 3 medical students will present a poster of their SSC project on either 14th or 15th July. The top quartile of posters determined by student peer review will receive certificates supporting excellence in SSCs.
The top 15 students will present short 10-minute oral presentations of their projects for academic peer review on 18th July. Three prizes will be awarded based on excellence in SSCs:
- £100 Year Director Prize
- £75 Student Choice Prize
- £50 External Reviewer Prize
