Dear Faculty, Students, Residents and Staff:
It is once again time to nominate our best educators for the Institute for Medical Education's (IME) Excellence in Teaching Awards. This is our 13th annual awards ceremony to honor educators from across the Mount Sinai Hospital System and consortium for their dedication and commitment to teaching and learning. This year marks the third time we will recognize faculty with the Dr. Nathan Kase Innovations in Medical Education Award and the Dr. Arthur H. Aufses, Jr. Career Achievement Award in Medical Education. The IME awards are invaluable to those who receive them because they formally acknowledge and reward innovation, commitment and excellence in medical education.
Please take the time to nominate those who have consistently demonstrated excellence and dedication as educators. Submission instructions and requirements are described in the attached nomination form. You may submit nominations for more than one person, but you must fill out an individual form for each nomination. Each nomination requires 2 support letters (including that of the nominator) and some awards require a third letter of support from the nominee’s Department Chair. Completed nominations are due by 5pm on Friday, April 3rd late submissions will not be accepted.
This year's ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday, June 23rd at 4:00 pm in the Hatch Auditorium. All are welcome to attend. As a nominator, you will be asked to present the award to the person you nominated should they receive one.
Please email Maggie Suppa, Margaret.firstname.lastname@example.org, with your completed nomination, support letters and any questions. We look forward to receiving your nominations. More information can be found on our website at: Institute for Medical Education.
