How are entries judged and who will be judging?

A panel of six CME and healthcare professionals will make up the judging and review committee. After entries are submitted, the panel of judges will begin a thorough process that includes pre-scoring to select the top 10, subsequent deliberation, and the ultimate decision of the winner and honorable mentions.

The judges of the Global CME Impact Award include GAME members from medical societies, commercial entities, medical education companies, and professional organizations. Judges will be chosen because of their professional and wide-ranging level of expertise.

Global Education Group staff members are not eligible to be judges and therefore Global will have no control or influence over the judging or awards selection.

For more information on judging and the criteria for scoring, please see the judging page.
