Nominations for the 2020/21 Awards are now open

The Awards for Academic Excellence are your opportunity to recognize the outstanding efforts of  supervisors, preceptors, teams, and leaders in clinical education who demonstrate excellence in creating a supportive and enriching environment for the students who come to learn in Sinai Health each year.

If you wish to make a nomination, please complete the appropriate form and send it as an Word attachment to

The criteria used to make the awards are listed in the forms, please be as detailed as possible.

  • Distinguished Educator Award recognises individuals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in their contribution to student clinical education through their commitment, teamwork, interprofessional collaboration and innovation.
  • Leadership in Education Award recognises individuals who have provided leadership in clinical education, have helped foster a culture where clinical education is valued, and who have supported others in their efforts to grow as teachers.
  • Collaboration in Education Award recognises a team, either in one profession or across professions, which has made an outstanding contribution to student education through their commitment, interprofessional collaboration and innovation.
  • Lifelong Learner Award recognises an individual who has shown their commitment to lifelong learning during their time in Sinai Health.

Previous award winners can be nominated multiple times for an award, but there are rules about how many times a person or team can actually be considered for a second award of the same type.  Whenever someone is nominated they receive a letter which they can use in their promotion portfolio or cv.

The rules for a second award are as follows:

  • Lifelong Learner award is awarded once only to any individual
  • Leadership in Education is awarded once only to any individual
  • Distinguished Educator award - this may be awarded multiple times to an individual but there must be a gap of three award cycles between awards.  For instance, if a Distinguished Educator award is made in year one, then another Distinguished Educator award may be made in year five, but not before.
  • Collaboration in Education - as membership of teams is constantly changing this award may be made to a named team multiple times without a gap between awards

For convenience the list of all previous award holders is here.
