About the Awards
Clinical teachers play a pivotal role in the medical workforce; driving innovation, educating our future doctors, and providing clinical leadership and expertise to ensure high-quality care to patients across the health service.
BMA Cymru Wales, with BMJ, established the Clinical Teacher of the Year awards to recognise the critical importance of clinical teaching in hospitals and the community, and to celebrate the excellent teaching standards in Wales.
The awards are hosted by the medical/clinical schools at Cardiff and Swansea, as well as the Wales Deanery, with the evening culminating in the overall Clinical Teacher of the Year Award chosen from the winners of the individual institutions’ awards.
- Cardiff University Medical School
- Swansea University Medical School
- The Wales Deanery
Up to three nominees from each of the institutions' internal processes will go through to the Clinical Teacher of the Year shortlist.
Up to two nominees from each institution will go through to the Rising Star, and Teaching and Learning Innovation shortlist, while one nominee from each will be admitted to the Outstanding Achievement shortlist.
A panel of judges selected by BMA Cymru Wales and BMJ will assess the nominees for each of the award categories and choose the winners. The panel may decide to make no award where, in their opinion, it is appropriate to do so.
The Clinical Teacher of the Year will receive a tailored learning and development package from the BMJ worth £1,000. The winners from the remaining three categories will receive a tailored learning and development package from the BMJ worth £500.
All of the winners will be presented with a specially commissioned sculpture from BMA Cymru Wales reflecting their award category.
