Call for nominations: 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.
After nominations are solicited, those faculty members who are nominated by a number of colleagues or students, or who have particularly compelling nominations, are asked to complete secondary applications. The Medical School Awards Committee will review these applications, select finalists and make recommendations to the dean and the executive committee for final endorsement.
Any faculty member who teaches in the pre-clinical setting of the curriculum (can include classroom (in-person and online), labs, simulation teaching in any phase of the curriculum) may be nominated for the pre-clinical award.
Any faculty member who teaches in the clinical setting of the curriculum (can include teaching in the clinical setting in any phase of the curriculum) may be nominated for the clinical award.
If the faculty member teaches throughout the four-year curriculum, they may be considered in either or both categories. Please note that former award winners are not eligible for re-nomination (see list below) for either award.
The nomination process began on Monday, Dec. 20. Please submit your nomination electronically by using this online nomination form by Friday, Jan. 28, 2022.
For questions about the process email Elaine Holleran or call 734-646-9565.
