UQMS Clinical Teaching Awards 2014
Our medical education is shaped by the efforts of our teachers and role models who go the above and beyond, and provide us with exceptional teaching. The vast majority of these individuals do so without any expectation of formal recognition or payment, but their efforts make an immeasurable impact on our training and learning.
Each year, the UQMS attempts to recognise these teachers and role models through its Teaching Awards. As per tradition, winners of these Awards are recognised at the annual E.S. Meyers Memorial Lecture, the premier academic event of the UQ School of Medicine and UQMS annually (visit www.esmeyers.org or http://bit.ly/esmeyers2014 for more information). Nominations are sought from all medical students at UQ, and based on the merit of the written nomination, are awarded by the UQMS.
