Excellent Longstanding Service to Undergraduate Clinical Education 2019

Leeds School of Medicine wishes to recognise NHS clinical teachers and other NHS staff who are due to retire, or have just retired and have a reputation for their commitment to teaching excellence and supporting our medical students over many years.

We invite Trusts and GP practices to nominate any members of staff they feel would merit this recognition for excellence and outstanding commitment over many years and would appreciate being put forward.  This need not be confined to consultants, it might, for example, be a member of the nursing staff who has consistently contributed outstanding teaching and/or support to medical students throughout their career, or an undergraduate student organiser who has given long praiseworthy service to students.

The recognition will take the form of a presentation at the Professionalism Ceremony (Friday 25 October 2019) held each autumn at the University for the Year 3 UG Medical Students and Year 2 Physician Associate students as they embark on their clinical placements, and renew their commitment to the ideals of medical professionalism. After lunch, there is a procession of invitees into the Great Hall followed by a speech to the students from invited keynote speakers. During the ceremony, the Dean of Medicine will make a presentation to the successful nominees.  Afterwards, there is a reception with the students.

This is a very prestigious award which will not be given without serious scrutiny of the nominees’ level of contribution. Please give sufficient detail on your reasons and provide the required evidence for your nominations to allow us to give them due consideration. You are invited to discuss your suggestions informally beforehand with either Elizabeth Allen or Professor Laura Stroud.
