GEMS Teaching Excellence Awards

Each year the Graduate Entry Medical School’s Education Committee seeks to recognise excellence in its teachers through Teaching Excellence Awards. These are student nominated awards (ratified by the School’s Education Committee) with GEMS students being invited to propose nominees from amongst their tutors and educational supervisors. Criteria considered when making nominations include enthusiasm and commitment for teaching & learning, ability to engage and motivate, approachability, efficiency.
