2019 Frank Rutledge Award for Excellence in Critical Care Teaching
This is a unique award open to any adult or pediatric critical care clinical teacher in Canada. It has been developed in partnership between the Critical Care Western at The University of Western Ontario, the Canadian Critical Care Society (CCCS) and the Critical Care Canada Forum.
Critical Care Western has undertaken to raise funds to support the prize. The CCCS and the Critical Care Canada Forum will provide the venue for presenting the award and support for the winner as a Forum speaker.
Any staff physician involved in full or part-time clinical teaching of residents in a Canadian academic critical care training program (adult or pediatric) is eligible. The nominee must be a member in good standing of the Canadian Critical Care Society at the time the nomination is reviewed. Any critical care resident can make a nomination. Alternatively, a group of critical care residents may submit a joint nomination. Several letters signed by different residents but part of one academic training program may better convey the strengths of the nominee than a single letter signed by multiple residents. The letter(s) should be detailed outlining the qualities of the candidate. Specific examples illustrating these qualities are helpful. It must provide the name and contact information for the nominee.
