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 will be presented at the 2013 Canadian Conference on Medical Education (Quebec City, Quebec) April 20 - 23. The recipient will receive a complimentary registration for the conference and all travel expenses will be covered.
