Recognition & Awards

    The American College of Emergency Physicians sponsors a national faculty teaching award to honor outstanding educators in emergency medicine. This award is designed to support emergency medicine faculty in their efforts to achieve academic advancement, as well as support the continued academic development of the specialty. The award recognizes superior teaching activities including didactic lectures, clinical instruction, the development of innovative educational programs, community education, and contributions to regional and global programs, as well as the endorsement by faculty, residents, and students. While the documentation required for this award is extensive, the process is designed to mimic the procedure used by university promotion and tenure committees in their deliberations.
