COMSEP Awards Program

In November 2010, as part of COMSEP’s 5-year strategic plan, the COMSEP Executive Committee endorsed the creation of the COMSEP awards program. The goal of the program is to honor COMSEP members who have made substantial contributions in the areas of:

  • Teaching/education
  •   Research/scholarship
  • Clerkship administration. 

In addition, the COMSEP Achievement Award was created to recognize a current or former COMSEP member who has made major contributions of great significance to our organization and our members.

This is a great opportunity to recognize COMSEP members who have made major contributions to medical education and to our organization.

Nominations for the COMSEP awards will be open from August 5 until December 15, 2013. A description of the awards, the submission requirements for each, and a link for the electronic submission process may be found at the COMSEP Awards web page:

Note that all nominations require a CV and 3 letters of recommendation. All materials should be submitted electronically in pdf format through the COMSEP Awards page.

The COMSEP Nominations and Award Committee will review all submissions and will select the winners of the Teaching/Education, Research/Scholarship and Excellence in Clerkship Administration Awards. The Nominations and Award Committee and 2 members of the COMSEP Executive Committee will select the recipient of the COSMEP Achievement Award. Award recipients will be announced at the 2013 Annual Meeting in Nashville.
