UCRH Teaching Awards 2022

UCRH Teaching Awards 2022

The UCRH teaching awards are a way of recognising and rewarding teaching and learning excellence within the UCRH. They are an opportunity to acknowledge the considerable time and effort many clinicians devote to enhancing the teaching and learning experience of our students and provide an appropriate forum in which to support the development of high quality and innovative teaching across the UCRH. In recognising the various ways in which clinicians contribute to the teaching and learning experience, the awards scheme aims to generate awareness of the quality of teaching and service delivery by engaging staff and students in the nomination and selection process and in so doing, seeks to demonstrate that good teaching practice is valued by UCRH.
The Awards recipients for the UOW and WSU medical programs in 2022 are as follows:

Award for Excellence in Enhancing the Student Experience – Dr Pepe Mifsud
