Excellence in Teaching Awards

About the Awards
The Excellence in Teaching Awards are peer-nominated and intended to highlight outstanding front-line teachers of medical students and residents at all UCSF teaching sites who might otherwise go unrecognized. These teachers should demonstrate dedication to the education of students/residents/fellows, and teach in a manner that creates an encouraging and intellectually stimulating environment that promotes critical thinking and learning.

The award cycle is annually, and is from May/June — July.
