CAEP’s Annual Awards recognize excellence in specific areas within emergency medicine, including advocacy, education, research, and professional practice.
Nominated by their peers, the final award winners are selected either by a CAEP committee* and/or the CAEP Board of Directors. Applicants from all backgrounds and practices (rural, urban, academic, community), particularly those who identify as a member of an underrepresented group in emergency medicine (including Indigenous, Black, people of colour, women, persons with disabilities, 2SLGBTQIA+ people) are invited to apply.
All nominators and nominees must be CAEP members.** Submissions must include a letter from a colleague, outlining the characteristics of the nominee as they relate to the award (multiple letters are accepted). A CV is also strongly recommended.
**With the exception of the Medical Journalism Award, Emergency Physician of the Year Award and the Penelope Gray-Allan Memorial CJEM Writing Award.
