Each year, ACEP sponsors a national Faculty Teaching Award and a national Junior Faculty Teaching Award 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 support the continued academic development of the specialty. The deadline to submit a nomination form and required material is April 14.
The awards recognize superior teaching activities including didactic lectures, clinical instruction, the development of innovative educational programs, as well as the endorsement by faculty, residents, and students. While the documentation required is extensive, the process is designed to mimic the procedure used by university promotion and tenure committees in their tenure deliberations. Recipients receive national recognition that can be used to document their teaching excellence. Award winners will be recognized with a plaque during ACEP14 in Chicago and by publication of their names in ACEP Now or other College publications. Applications can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
