Department of Medicine Prizes & Awards

Eaton Scholar Researcher of the Year Award (Past Recipients)

The Department of Medicine Research Award, established in 1989, recognizes a member of the Department of Medicine who has demonstrated sustained excellence as a scientist and role model over several years. The award, consisting of an honorarium and commemorative certificate, is presented at the Department of Medicine Annual Day, where the award recipient is invited to deliver a scholarly address.

The Eaton Scholars program, generously supported by the Eaton family, is intended to recognize and reward excellence among clinician-scientists in the department – an aim shared by the Researcher of the Year Award. The Eaton Scholars program was aligned with the Researcher of the Year Award in 2015.

Department of Medicine Teacher of the Year Award (Past Recipients)

The Department of Medicine Teaching Award, established in 1989, recognizes a member of the Department of Medicine who has demonstrated sustained excellence as a teacher and role model over several years. The award, consisting of an honorarium and commemorative certificate, is presented at the Department of Medicine Annual Day, where the award recipient is invited to deliver a scholarly address.

Robert Hyland Award for Excellence in Mentorship (Past Recipients)

Introduced in 2007, this award is designed to recognize faculty who have shown sustained excellence in mentoring other members of the department including helping them to develop their professional careers while balancing the competing challenges of their personal lives. A commemorative certificate is presented at the Department of Medicine Annual Day. In 2010 this award was re-named the Robert Hyland Award for Excellence in Mentorship.

The DoM is now accepting nominations for the 2017 Robert Hyland Award for Excellence in Mentorship.

Department of Medicine Award in Quality and Innovation (Past Recipients)

The Department of Medicine first started recognizing contributions to the related fields of healthcare quality, patient safety, and innovation in 2007. The award recognizes outstanding leadership or academic contributions that aim to improve the quality of healthcare. Examples might include efforts to improve the degree to which patients receive proven aspects of care (eg, increasing guideline concordant care), reducing harms to patients from medical care (patient safety), as well as innovations in health services delivery—new models of care that improve outcomes, the patient experience, or healthcare value.

The William Goldie Prize and Travel Award (Past Recipients)

The William Goldie Prize and Travel Award was established in 1945 by an anonymous donor to honour the late Dr. William Goldie, who held a faculty appointment in the Department of Medicine. The prize - consisting of a commemorative certificate and travel grant - is awarded annually to a member of the department who is within 10 years of appointment to the department and who has made a contribution of notable merit to the advancement of sound knowledge in internal medicine through research, teaching, or quality & innovation. In recent years, three prizes have been awarded each year, one for research contributions, one for teaching contributions, and one for quality & innovation contributions.
