Fellows are selected based on demonstration of excellence in teaching across the continuum of medical education; significant contributions to medical school courses or clerkhips; and potential for continued contributions and leadership in medical education. They are nominated by their department chair, and their nominations are endorsed by the Steering Committee of the Academy.

Masters of the Academy

Masters have a lifetime tenure in the Academy. This membership status honors faculty members for their extraordinary and long-standing contributions to medical education and their demonstration of sustained excellence in teaching; leadership in or significant contributions to medical education at a national/international level; evidence of educational scholarship and/or innovation; and serving as role models who inspire others. Candidates are nominated by the Steering Committee from the ranks of Fellows and other senior faculty, with nominations endorsed by their department chairs.
