These awards are presented to faculty members who have earned distinction for themselves and for the University or who have gone above and beyond in their roles.

The 2024 competition was launched on April 23 and the nomination deadline is June 10. The details about the 27 categories are below, and a summary of requirements can be found be clicking here (pdf, 303.48 KB). 

Information common to all award categories: 

Eligibility: For all award categories, part-time and full-time regular and clinical members of the Faculty of Members, in any rank (lecturers and adjunct, assistant, associate, full and emeritus professors) may be nominated. 

Most awards (other than the Early-career Researcher awards) can be granted at any point in a career, but cannot be won by the same individual more than once in a seven (7) year period.

The Faculty is committed to fostering an equitable workplace environment that provides equal opportunities for everyone and that respects and values diversity. Thank you for taking this into account when nominating candidates for prizes. This will be considered in the selection of laureates.

Nomination submission: Nominations must be submitted using the online submission platform

Selection process: The Selection Committee is chaired by the Director of Awards and Prizes and is composed of departmental and learner representatives. The Committee’s selection is then presented to the Faculty of Medicine Executive Leadership Team for final approval.

Award: The recipients will be presented with a commemorative trophy.

  • The Faculty is pleased to announce that there are now eight Educator of the Year awards, up from three in 2023. See category descriptions below.  
  • The two mentorship awards have been broadened to include mentorship not only of learners and early-career faculty, but also of individuals in more advanced stages of their careers.
