AFMC Young Educators Award

The AFMC Young Educators Award recognizes individuals within their first seven years as a faculty member who have produced change within their university or within the medical community as a whole through their vision, work, and interaction with colleagues. The award is open only to candidates with MD or graduate degrees. Nominees will often be recognized as outstanding teachers but this in itself will not be the basis for the award.

The award and the associated $1,500 honorarium will be presented at the 2018 Canadian Conference on Medical Education (Halifax, Nova Scotia), April 28 - May 1, 2018. The recipient will receive a complimentary registration for the conference; however, other expenses for attending the conference are not covered.

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 nomination package must also include two reference letters as well as a letter of support from the Dean. Each Canadian faculty of medicine may submit up to two nominations for this award.

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.
