Acknowledging the significant contribution of an increasing number of community-based teachers to the learning of medical students and residents at the University of Toronto, the Office of Integrated Medical Education created three new awards to recognize excellence in community-based teaching. Launched during the fall of 2012, the awards carry a cash value of $1,000 and are presented at the Faculty of Medicine's Annual Education Achievement Day Celebration.
In our inaugural year, we received twenty-two nominations. A wide range of clinical specialties and community-based hospitals were represented through these stellar nominees. A total of five awards were given across three categories:
- Excellence in Community-Based Teaching (Community Hospital)
- Excellence in Community-Based Teaching (Clinic/Office/Practice)
- Sustained Excellence in Community-Based Teaching
