Call for Nominations
Due Friday, June 2, 2017

The SEA Duke Award for Excellence and Innovation in Anesthesia Education was created back in 1996, thanks to a generous gift from the Department of Anesthesia at Duke University. The purpose of the award is to recognize people who have had a long commitment to teaching and have contributed positively to the advancement of teaching anesthesia to medical students, residents, and faculty. Because we at the SEA are at the forefront of spearheading educational efforts in our specialty, past recipients have tended to come from within our midst.

Membership in SEA is not necessary for consideration, though the nominating individual does have to be a SEA member.

Past winners include anesthesiologists of national stature as well as non-physicians. Their opuses include technical advancements, course developments, writings and education research. Their common bond is a documented love of teaching anesthesia and longevity in the field. The prize includes a plaque and $5,000 and is awarded at the Fall meeting every year.
