There are three DoM Teaching and Education Awards:
- Teacher of the Year Award
- William Goldie Prize and Travel Award in Education
- William Goldie Prize and Travel Award in Teaching
The Department of Medicine’s Research Awards recognize members of the Department of Medicine who have made contributions to the advancement of knowledge in medicine and demonstrated excellence as a scientist and researcher.
The purpose of this award is to recognize faculty who have shown sustained excellence in mentoring other members of the Department including helping them to develop their professional careers while balancing the competing challenges of their personal lives.
Mentorship is a process whereby an experienced, highly regarded, empathetic person (the mentor) guides another (usually younger or more junior) individual (the mentee) in the development and re-examination of their own ideas, learning, and personal and professional development.
The Department of Medicine’s overriding mission is to ensure the delivery of excellent clinical care in its associated hospitals, and the preparation of future physician leaders that will help carry this mission forward throughout Canada and the World. Within the Department, certain faculty members serve as exemplars of this mission, providing leadership in patient care that elevates and enlarges the profession.
The Department of Medicine’s top priority is to ensure patients and their families, and their experiences, drive our work. The fundamental principles of "person-centeredness" are open communication, mutual respect, and emotional connection between physicians and their patients.
