Nominees sought: Kaiser Permanente Awards for Excellence in Teaching
The Office of Medical Student Education in the U-M Medical School is soliciting nominations by faculty and students for the Kaiser Permanente Awards. The Kaiser Award is the most prestigious teaching award given by the medical school.
Made possible by a grant from the Kaiser Foundation Hospitals, it consists of an honorarium of $5,000 and a certificate which is presented to each awardee at the Graduation Luncheon.
Two awards are given each year — one for preclinical and one for clinical teaching. Faculty and students are asked to consider nominating those outstanding teachers who have demonstrated superior teaching ability; accessibility or willingness to help students more than other teachers; enthusiasm and the ability to generate student enthusiasm; the ability to serve as an exemplary role model; and other traits nominators deem to be important.
Please submit your nomination electronically by using this online nomination form.
Nominations are due Friday, Jan. 31.
