Awards and Recognition of Best Practice
The QAU manages a number of schemes which aim to spotlight and support excellence and/or commission improvements in the delivery of undergraduate medical education.
These annual awards are open to anyone involved in the provision of education to medical students. Applications are assessed by an expert panel and winners receive a cash prize and a framed certificate. Awards are presented by the Vice Provost (Health) and Head of the Medical School, Professor Sir John Tooke at the graduation ceremony.
Throughout the academic year, students have the opportunity to vote for teachers who have made an especially positive contribution to their learning during each module. Those with the most votes are awarded a Top Teacher certificate.
At the end of each academic year, students also have the opportunity to vote for administrators who have been particularly helpful to them during their studies over the course of the year.
These certificates aim to reward junior or low grade doctors directly involved in the education of medical students, who go above and beyond their required contribution to teach.
