Teaching Excellence Awards 2022

About

Welcome

24 May 2022

The annual Teaching Excellence Awards is a highlight of our calendar, recognising the outstanding contribution of colleagues across the region to our Medicine and Physician Associate programmes.

The nominees and winners are all submitted and chosen by students, acknowledging those who have inspired, supported, and had a positive impact on our students’ lives and education.

The Awards celebrate the outstanding teaching delivered in collaboration with our NHS Trust, primary and community care partners, and the exceptional breadth of clinical experience that these partnerships facilitate.

We will be announcing our winners during the event on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook using #HYMSAwards - be sure to follow us!
