Each year, ACEP sponsors faculty teaching awards to honor outstanding educators in emergency medicine. These awards are designed to support emergency medicine faculty in their efforts to achieve academic advancement as well as to support the continued academic development of the specialty.
The awards recognize superior teaching activities, including didactic lectures, clinical instruction, and the development of innovative educational programs, as well as endorsement by faculty, residents, and students. Nominations are due April 13, 2015, and can be e-mailed to email@example.com. While the documentation required for these awards is extensive, the process is designed to mimic the procedure used by university promotion and tenure committees in their tenure deliberations. Recipients of these awards will receive national recognition that can be used to document their teaching excellence.
The National Emergency Medicine Faculty Teaching Award recognizes an emergency physician educator at the instructor, assistant professor, associate professor, or professor level. This award is recommended for faculty at least seven years postresidency.
The National Emergency Medicine Junior Faculty Teaching Award recognizes an emergency physician educator at the instructor or assistant professor level. This award is recommended for applicants between three and seven years postresidency.
