AFMC - John Ruedy Award for Innovation in Medical Education
To honour Dr. John Ruedy on his retirement as Dean of Medicine at Dalhousie University in 1999, the faculty of medicine established a national award in his name. The AFMC - John Ruedy Award for Innovation in Medical Education will be awarded to an individual or group who has developed innovative print materials, electronic learning aids or other teaching aids. These Canadian innovations can take the form of textbooks, software, CD-ROMS or other technology that has aided medical education initiatives in undergraduate, postgraduate or continuing medical education.
The award and the associated $1,800 honorarium will be presented at the 2014 Canadian Conference on Medical Education (Ottawa, Ontario), April 26 - 29. The recipient will receive a complimentary registration for the conference; however, other expenses for attending the conference are not covered.
Any faculty member, through the office of the dean may submit a nomination. Please ensure that you include a clear statement about the nominee's achievements, why he or she is being recommended, and an up-to-date curriculum vitae. The nomination package must also include two reference letters as well as a letter of support from the Dean. Each Canadian faculty of medicine may submit up to two nominations for this award.
The deadline for receipt of nominations is November 8, 2013. The nomination, including 1 copy of all documentation, should be sent to the AFMC at firstname.lastname@example.org . Selected recipients will be notified in December 2013.
