AFMC - John Ruedy Award for Innovation in Medical Education

To honour Dr. John Ruedy on his retirement as Dean of Medicine at Dalhousie University in 1999, the faculty of medicine established a national award in his name. The AFMC - John Ruedy Award for Innovation in Medical Education will be awarded to an individual or group who has developed innovative print materials, electronic learning aids or other teaching aids. These Canadian innovations can take the form of textbooks, software, CD-ROMS or other technology that has aided medical education initiatives in undergraduate, postgraduate or continuing medical education.

The award will be presented at the 2018 Canadian Conference on Medical Education, held in Halifax, Nova Scotia from April 28 to May 1, 2018 and includes repayment of certain expenses as determined each year by Dalhousie University. The recipient will receive a complimentary registration for the conference.

Nomination Procedure

Any faculty member, through the office of the dean may submit a nomination. Please ensure that you include a clear statement about the nominee's achievements, why he or she is being recommended, and an up-to-date curriculum vitae.

The deadline for receipt of nominations is September 30, 2017. The nomination, including 1 copy of all documentation, should be sent to the AFMC at awards@afmc.ca. Selected recipients will be notified in November 2017.
