2014 Alumni Awards of Excellence

Nominations for the 2014 Alumni Awards of Excellence are now open to any member of the University of Toronto community.  There are seven awards available and the Faculty strongly encourages our staff, students and faculty members to nominate colleagues for these awards.

The Faculty of Medicine will run an internal competition for four of these awards which will then be submitted with a letter of support from the Dean.  These awards recognize faculty members who have achieved excellence in leadership or both teaching and research.

The awards are:

Nominations must include a description of why the nominee fits the selection criteria and, with the exception of the Northrop Frye Departmental award, all nominations must be accompanied by an up to date CV.  For the Northrop Frye Departmental award, the nomination must also include supporting material.  The Faculty will then assist in the coordination of the complete nomination package.
