The recipient of this award will be a resident whose teaching in any one of all of the following settings has been highly evaluated by students: teaching on the ward during the course of day-to-day service activities, teaching in the operating room, and teaching in the clinic setting. The resident will demonstrate both a positive attitude toward teaching and will be considered a good surgical role model for undergraduate medical students.
The quality of the candidate’s teaching will be determined by means of the following:
- Objective student assessment (by questionnaire).
- Review of clerkship debriefing reports.
- Letters of recommendation from students and/or faculty.
Nominations may be made by students, faculty or residents in writing to the Director of Undergraduate Education. All nominations are reviewed by the Undergraduate Education Committee and a list ranking the candidates is provided to the Chairman of the Department for final selection.
The D.R. Wilson Award is awarded at the Gallie Day Reception. The recipients receive a cheque for $500.
