The RDM hosts a large number of undergraduate and graduate-entry medical students at various stages of their training, as well as Final Honours School undergraduate students in physiological sciences, biochemistry and related disciplines.  Many scientists and clinicians allied to RDM are active in providing teaching and educational supervision for these students.

The RDM Education Committee exists to support and promote teaching across the department. If you're interested in getting involved in teaching, or if you would like to improve your teaching skills with formal faculty development opportunities, please do get in touch with us at

RDM Science Education Prize 2021

The RDM Education Group is inviting applications for the 2021 Science Education Prize, with the aim of encouraging DPhil students, postdoctoral researchers and non-tenured clinical fellows across the medical sciences division to translate their research into a learning opportunity for Oxford's medical students.

Whatever the focus of your research, we invite you to develop this into teaching for students working toward their preclinical or clinical degree. Your teaching should be suitable for online delivery, but may take any format you wish. 

The deadline for abstracts is 10th May 2021, and we will ask you to submit your teaching content by the start of Michaelmas term 2021. Judging, by a majority student panel, will take place during Michaelmas term, with winners announced in late December 2021.  First prize is £500.

The abstract submission form is available here. Please do contact us at with any queries.
