The HAPS-Thieme Excellence in Teaching Award

A message from Don Kelly, co-chair of the HAPS Foundation/Grants and Scholarships Committee.

Know a great teacher, someone you feel inspires students to success in anatomy and physiology?  If you do (and we all do), please consider nominating him or her for the HAPS-Thieme Excellence in Teaching Award.  HAPS is delighted to team up with Thieme Publishers to offer this opportunity to recognize one of our own for efforts in the classroom or laboratory.  

Nominated instructors must be teaching anatomy and physiology during this academic year, with an expectation that they will continue, must be a HAPS member, and must be an exemplary teacher.  

To qualify to nominate an instructor, you must be an instructor or administrator at an accredited institution in the United States or Canada, have at least two years of experience, and be able to explain why the nominee deserves the award.

The award includes a $1500 cash award and waiver of fees for the HAPS Annual Conference.  The recipient will present the “HAPS-Thieme Award for Excellence in Teaching Workshop” during the Annual Conference Workshop Sessions in May 2017.  We had terrific workshops at the 2015 and 2016 conferences.  This year’s recipient will join an illustrious group that includes Terry Thompson and Mary Tracy Bee.

Nomination forms and details on award criteria can be found on the HAPS webpage. Deadline for nominations for this and all the other HAPS scholarships is December 1st, 2017.
