 Objectives
This award is intended to recognize learners who have demonstrated a commitment and/or passion for health professions education.

The Award
The CAME Rising Star Certificate of Excellence consists of a certificate and the opportunity to write an article for the CAME newsletter.

For the 2023-2024 cycle the initial nomination does not need to be made by a CAME member. Members currently serving on the CAME Executive or CAME Board of Directors are not eligible as nominees. The award is adjudicated locally at each Faculty of medicine; contact your local CAME representative for details of the nomination process.

* The CAME Awards Committee has no role in adjudicating the CAME Rising Star Certificate of Excellence. While sponsored by CAME, these awards are adjudicated locally by CAME Board School Representatives and their committees.
