CAME seeks to both foster and celebrate excellence in medical education. We aim to do so via three main routes.

The CAME Awards

The CAME Awards highlight the amazing contributions of members in our community. The purpose of the CAME awards is to recognize excellence in medical education. The award recipients will be recognized at the annual CAME Luncheon in conjunction with the Canadian Conference on Medical Education (CCME).

Criteria and documentation vary for each award, so please review each carefully before submitting your nomination.
