Since 2007, IAMSE has honored member medical educators with two prestigious awards, the Master Scholar and Master Teacher awards. We now open the nominations for the 2016 Master awards, which will be presented at the annual meeting in Leiden, The Netherlands, in June.
The Master Scholar Award recognizes an IAMSE member who has a distinguished record of educational scholarship, including educational research and/or dissemination of scholarly approached to teaching and education. This could include development of multimedia medical education programs, research in the areas of curriculum design and evaluation, student assessment, or innovative programs and methods.
The Master Teacher Award honors an IAMSE member who, over the course of many years, has consistently demonstrated extraordinary excellence in teaching, both at his/her institution and within IAMSE. Any teaching can be recognized, but nominations of members who have been active teachers at the annual IAMSE meetings or web seminars are particularly encouraged.
Qualified candidates may self-nominate, or be nominated by an IAMSE colleague.
Details regarding each award, required application materials, and deadlines are found here. All nomination/application packets must be received by Brandi Hinkle (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than February 29, 2016.
