The CORD Academy for Scholarship in Education in Emergency Medicine is pleased to offer the Academy Award to outstanding educators who have met rigorous standards of academic excellence within the last five years. This award is in effect for five years during which awardees are asked to mentor and support academic excellence and scholarship in emergency medicine education within CORD. Awardees can reapply for the award at the end of the five year period.
The purpose of the CORD Academy for Scholarship in Education in Emergency Medicine is to:
- Foster and value the scholarship of teaching and learning.
- Provide role modeling and support for educators in emergency medicine education programs.
- Foster networking and collaboration among institutions of emergency medicine education by providing a forum for the exchange of ideas about educational endeavors including teaching, evaluation, curriculum design and implementation, faculty development and educational research.
Thus, this Academy Award supports the mission of the Academy by recognizing those educators who have an exemplary record of achievement in emergency medicine education and advancing the development of a network of mentors for future growth in emergency medicine education scholarship.
Applications for the award are assessed once a year after the nomination deadline. Each candidate’s mini-portfolio, including CV in the required format, should be submitted electronically on the Nomination Form to CORD on or before the deadline.
