About the KIPRIME podcast

The KIPRIME is a major international award and was created to recognise and stimulate high-quality research in the field. In this podcast series we will explore the origins of the KIPRIME and discover the passion and commitment of the people who made it happen.

We will also hear from previous winners and discover how their research has helped to blaze a trail in this emerging field.

Inspiring and supporting the next generation of researchers is at the heart of the prize and a major initiative in 2019 was to establish a fellowship programme, KIPRIME Fellows. This exciting project has brought together some of the brightest minds who are at the cutting edge of research in medical education. From examining the neuroscientific correlates of clinical reasoning to exploring the dominance of the global north, we’ll hear from 13 inspiring scientists, doctors, psychologists and researchers.
