Glenn Regehr, PhD, has been awarded the 2020 Karolinska Institutet Prize for Research in Medical Education. Dr Regehr is a senior scientist, founding associate director of research at the Centre for Health Education Scholarship, and professor (Department of Surgery) in the UBC Faculty of Medicine. His work has improved the educational and scholarly practices in health professions education. His research looks broadly at the experiences of learners and teachers in the health professions. Dr Regehr will receive the award and a prize amount of €75 000.

The purpose of the prize is to recognize and stimulate high-quality research in the field and to promote long-term improvements of educational practices in medical training.

Dr Regehr’s main research impact has been in conceptualizing methodology and its relationship to theory, a groundwork for significant research activity. He has also introduced a variety of methodological innovations, drawing heavily on work done outside the health professions.

The Karolinska Institutet Prize for Research in Medical Education is financed by the Gunnar Höglund and Anna-Stina Malmborg Foundation.

Above is the information needed to cite this article in your paper or presentation. The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) recommends the following citation style, which is the now nearly universally accepted citation style for scientific papers:
Halpern SD, Ubel PA, Caplan AL, Marion DW, Palmer AM, Schiding JK, et al. Solid-organ transplantation in HIV-infected patients. N Engl J Med. 2002;347:284-7.

About the ICMJE and citation styles

The ICMJE is small group of editors of general medical journals who first met informally in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 1978 to establish guidelines for the format of manuscripts submitted to their journals. The group became known as the Vancouver Group. Its requirements for manuscripts, including formats for bibliographic references developed by the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), were first published in 1979. The Vancouver Group expanded and evolved into the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), which meets annually. The ICMJE created the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals to help authors and editors create and distribute accurate, clear, easily accessible reports of biomedical studies.

An alternate version of ICMJE style is to additionally list the month an issue number, but since most journals use continuous pagination, the shorter form provides sufficient information to locate the reference. The NLM now lists all authors.

BCMJ standard citation style is a slight modification of the ICMJE/NLM style, as follows:

  • Only the first three authors are listed, followed by "et al."
  • There is no period after the journal name.
  • Page numbers are not abbreviated.
