Exemplary Teaching awards

The TAFP created the Texas Exemplary Teaching Award in 2004. This award is given to physicians recognized for exemplary teaching skills by medical students, resident or peers or to physicians who developed and implemented innovative new teaching models or programs. 

Please note that nominations can be made in the full-time, part-time or volunteer faculty categories. Physicians nominated in the full-time or part-time categories should hold a regular faculty appointment, and teach and practice exclusively in an academic setting. Physicians nominated in the volunteer category should not practice in an academic setting, but engage in volunteer teaching activities. All nominees must be TAFP members.

Nomination requirements

  • Submit a completed nomination form,
  • Submit a typed copy of a current curriculum vitae limited to five pages,
  • Submit a current head-and-shoulders photo of the candidate, and
  • Submit a minimum of three and maximum of five letters of recommendation. At least two must be from individuals who are current or former students/residents who have been taught by the nominee.

Nominees will be evaluated on their commitment and contributions in the areas of teaching, patient care, community service and scholarly activity.

Questions should be addressed to Juleah Williams by email at jwilliams@tafp.org or by phone at (512) 329-8666, ext 135.
