Emergency Medicine: Anna Jarvis Award For Teaching Excellence
Anna Jarvis Award for Teaching Excellence in Emergency Medicine
About Anna Jarvis
The Anna Jarvis Award for Teaching Excellence in Emergency Medicine was established in 1993 to recognize excellence in formal teaching among the faculty in Emergency Medicine. Formal teaching includes that occurring at bedside, didactic lectures and seminars/workshops.
The FRCP-EM and CCFP-EM programs nominate recipients based on four criteria: academic involvement, clinical exposure, commitment to resident needs, and research activities. A committee, consisting of an ED Chief (named by the department division director), the residency program director, the division director, and two resident representatives reviews the nominees teaching effectiveness and participation. They then select one recipient for each program.
