What is the Ian Hart Award?
The Award recognises individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to undergraduate, postgraduate and/or continuing medical education at a national, regional or international level. The award winner will have demonstrated the creativity, diligence, agility and leadership necessary to significantly advance the field of medical education. The individual will have demonstrated achievement through their contributions to curriculum planning, teaching and learning, assessment, education management or some other aspect of medical education. Particularly important is the ability to demonstrate sharing and communicating, which were major features of Ian’s work.
The Award is made possible through the support of the Hart family and AMEE. Individuals working in the field of medical and health professions education may both nominate and be nominated.
One award is made biennially and is presented at the time of the Ottawa Conference. The awardee receives US$4,000 and free registration to the Ottawa Conference. He/she is also invited to make an oral presentation at the Conference.
