SEA/Duke Award

Duke Logo Web

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 Anesthesiology 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. The Department of Anesthesiology at Duke University has generously provided a $5,000 grant to be awarded annually by SEA to an individual based on substantial contribution to anesthesia education.

Because we at 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 an 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.
