We are proud to offer this award to recognise innovations in medical education. The award has been established to recognise an individual who has made an exceptional contribution to undergraduate, postgraduate, or continuing medical education at a local, national, regional, or international level. 
The Ian Hart award is made every two years at the Ottawa conference. Details on how to apply will be posted when available.

The Award

The Ian Hart Award for Innovation in Medical Education has been made possible through the support of the Hart family and AMEE.

The award is a cash prize of $4000, and free registration for the upcoming Ottawa Conference.

The winner will be selected from the applications received by an international panel of leaders in medical education. Individuals can be nominated or be self-nominated and require a letter of support from a sponsor.
