Nominations Invited for FoM Awards – Deadline Friday June 4, 2021

 

 

Dear UBC Psychiatry Department Members,

Following the Dean’s Call for Nominations for the 2021 UBC Faculty of Medicine Awards on May 3, 2021, I wish to announce that the Department will carry out an internal nomination and selection process for the Award Categories listed below. Hence, at this initial stage we invite nominations for (or self-nominations) from any qualified academic or clinical faculty members and staff who wish to be considered for any one of these awards.

At this initial stage, the only required document is the Nominee’s CV. Please submit your nomination or self-nomination at this link: https://ubc.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5hzj9hrYvRtkxcF by 4:30pm on Friday June 4, 2021.

Once all nominations and self-nominations have been submitted by the Department deadline, they will be reviewed by a subcommittee who will make a recommendation to the Department Head. The Department Head will then submit Department nominee(s) for each award to the Faculty of Medicine. Prior to the Dean’s Office submission deadline of June 25, 2021, the Psychiatry administration office will work directly with the Department Nominees in obtaining additional documentation (ie. evaluation forms, reference letters etc.) to complete the nomination package to be submitted.
