Prizes and Awards


The Academy of Medical Educators presents a number of prizes and awards each year.  
Honorary Fellowship is the highest award of the Academy of Medical Educators. The award is intended for exceptional individuals whose contributions are often internationally recognised and who have made a significant contribution to medical education. See a list of all of our Honorary Fellows here.  
Members and Fellows in good standing can nominate individuals for Honorary Fellowship at any time, but to be considered by the Prizes and Awards Committee in time for the next ceremonies in April and June 2022 they will need to be received by 28 February. We welcome nominations that increase the diversity of our list of Honorary Fellows. Please log in to the members' area for further details and to make a nomination.  
In Autumn 2021 the President has been delighted to award five Honorary Fellowships.
