Clinical Teaching Excellence Awards – launch

We are pleased to launch the Clinical Teaching Excellence Awards for academic year 2021/22. The deadline for submission is Friday 1 April 2022.

On behalf of Leeds School of Medicine, Leeds Institute of Medical Education (LIME) wishes to encourage and reward excellent undergraduate clinical teaching across the NHS in West Yorkshire and Harrogate, and to support the development of medical, healthcare and dental staff in this area.

  • Teaching Excellence awards are available to individuals or teams in the NHS or General Practice, to support their further development in clinical teaching. Awards are not restricted to medical staff and are open to all healthcare staff who are currently teaching the University of Leeds’ medical or dental students and are planning to continue their involvement in teaching.
  • Development awards are available for junior staff who are starting out on their career in medical education and will not yet be able to demonstrate excellence in teaching over several years but can show that they have already received good student feedback, and are active in clinical teaching.

Successful award winners will be offered a funding contribution (£3000) towards the Post Graduate Certificate in Clinical Education programme or the Masters in Medical Education, delivered by LIME, School of Medicine, University of Leeds.

The Postgraduate Certificate and Masters in Clinical Education are inter-professional courses highly relevant to all experienced healthcare and healthcare-related practitioners involved in education and learning in clinical or HEIs:
