Call for Nominations for 2019-2020 Clinical and Research Faculty Teaching Awards

Since 2008, the Department has administered Teaching Awards in recognition of outstanding contributions in the teaching, supervision and/or mentorship of students to one member of the clinical and one member of research faculty.

On behalf of the Department, the Faculty Awards Committee is seeking nominations for this year’s award.

Nominating Process

Anyone in the Department – faculty, staff, students, residents, and fellows – may submit a nomination. Nominations may be submitted by individuals or by groups (e.g. students of Professor X). Contributions to consider may include:

- Supervision of graduate students and post-doctoral fellows;
- Supervision of clinical rotations for Medical Genetics fellows, residents, genetic counselling students or medical students;
- Teaching in undergraduate and/or graduate courses, in Medical School and Genetic Counselling Program courses, lectures, small group sessions, practical sessions, or other formal type of teaching;
- Supervision of a student’s Independent Studies project, graduate thesis, or participating in an examination or thesis committee;

The Faculty Awards Committee will review the applications in June. Awards will be presented at the annual Graduate Student Orientation session, which is usually held in late August. Nominators (or a delegate) are expected to participate in the presentation of the awards.

To nominate a candidate, please complete the nomination form at the bottom of this page by Tuesday, June 16th, 2020 and send it to:
