The Academy of Educators Committee on Teaching Awards has established a number of teaching awards to recognize the importance of excellence in medical student teaching, increase the prestige of great teachers and make teaching a more viable part of a faculty member’s career path.  These teaching awards are not restricted to current members of the Academy of Educators.  Instead, the Committee felt that the awards would become an important part of the recipients’ teaching portfolios and would help support admission to the Academy of Medical Educators and would facilitate promotion and tenure decisions.
