In uOttawa’s bid to increase its research intensity and international recognition, research and teaching prizes and awards are becoming more and more important.

Awards such as these promote and recognize a culture of excellence and raise the visibility and profile of the institution and its members on the national and international scene. Gaining this recognition strengthens the appeal of uOttawa as a first-class institution for study and research and encourages careers in research/academia.

The Faculty of Medicine Awards and Prizes Office provides assistance to faculty members in identifying relevant awards and prizes and preparing applications, as well as coordinating nominations with key stakeholders within and external to the University.
