Master Teacher Award

The Master Teacher Award is presented to faculty in recognition for sustained excellence in teaching and longstanding contributions to medical education (previous teaching awards, teaching evaluations and mentorship data). 

This award will be presented annually to a maximum of three recipients. Nominations are not permitted for this award; candidates will be identified by Department of Medical Imaging Leadership. If the candidates do not meet the standard of excellence required for this award, it will not be given that year. 

The award recipient(s) will be notified directly and receive a framed certificate.  

Criteria and Nomination Process
The recipient(s) of this award must have a primary appointment in the Department of Medical Imaging at the University of Toronto.  

As this award demonstrates the highest excellence in teaching, recipients are not eligible to receive this award more than once and will not be considered for the following Awards: Outstanding Teacher - Residency, Outstanding Teacher – Fellowship and E.L. Lansdown Teaching Award.

Selection Process
This award will be adjudicated by a committee chaired by a designated faculty member in the Department of Medical Imaging.

Selection will be based on previous teaching awards, Learner Assessment of Clinical Teacher scores (both undergraduate and postgraduate) and ensuring a fair representation across sites and divisions.
