Introduction
The American College of Emergency Physicians sponsors a national faculty teaching and junior faculty teaching award to honor outstanding educators in emergency medicine. These awards are designed to support emergency medicine faculty in their efforts to achieve academic advancement, as well as support the continued academic development of the specialty. The awards recognize superior teaching activities including didactic lectures, clinical instruction, the development of innovative educational programs, as well as the endorsement by faculty, residents, and students. While the documentation required for these awards are extensive, the process is designed to mimic the procedure used by university promotion and tenure committees in their tenure deliberations. Recipients of these awards will receive national recognition that can be used to document their teaching excellence.
