In memory of the late Miriam Friedman Ben-David, the New Educators Award aims to recognize AMEE individual members who have made significant contributions within the field of health professions education at a local, regional, national or international level in a relatively short time as new educators.

Presented for the first time in 2008, the prize includes free registration for the next AMEE conference, plus £1,000 (no facilities and administration fee). The winner will also be invited to present a short communication presentation at an upcoming AMEE conference.

The winner is announced at the AMEE conference.

Information on the 2023 Miriam Friedman Ben-David New Educators Award will be posted here soon, check back for updates.

This letter should clearly agree with the contributions provided by the candidate and state why they believe the candidate deserves the award in relationship to these contributions.
