Call for Nominations for the 2020 CIHR-ICRH/CAEP Mid-Career Lecturer Award in Emergency Medicine
The CIHR Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health (CIHR-ICRH) and the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians (CAEP) have partnered on the 2020 CIHR-ICRH/CAEP Mid-Career Lecturer Award in Emergency Medicine to recognize an individual's outstanding contribution to the advancement of emergency medicine both in Canada and internationally at the mid-point of their career. The award will be presented to the selected candidate at the 2020 CAEP Annual Scientific Meeting, where the recipient will deliver a lecture as part of the scientific program.
The selected candidate will be an outstanding mid-career investigator (at the time of application, has assumed their independent research position 5-15 years ago) who has conducted the majority of their research in Canada and has contributed significantly to the advancement of emergency medicine in Canada and/or internationally. The individual may have conducted work in any one of a number of emergency medicine disciplines and within any of the four CIHR research theme areas: biomedical; clinical; health systems and services; and social, cultural, environmental and population health. The successful candidate’s research should also be aligned with the interests of CAEP.
The award consists of a $5,000 honorarium in addition to coverage of all expenses (e.g., travel, accommodations, registration fee, etc.) for the recipient to attend the 2020 CAEP Annual Scientific Meeting and to deliver a lecture on a research topic relevant to a broad research audience.
Please note that you are entitled to submit only one nomination form per Mid-Career Lecturer Award competition. Scientists who have received an ICRH partnered Mid-Career Lecturer Award previously are not eligible for nomination. Nominations will be held for consideration for up to three (3) consecutive years from the original nomination year.
Nominations will be assessed against the following evaluation criteria:
- Impact of nominee’s research on emergency medicine both in Canada and internationally; extent to which the nominee has contributed significantly to the advancement of emergency medicine both in Canada and internationally (e.g., important/key research results or findings) over the last ten years.
- Relevance/application/impact of nominee’s research to a clinical setting (i.e., translational research; “from bench to bedside”).
- Demonstrated strength and reputation of the proposed nominee in the field of emergency medicine in Canada and internationally.
- Impact of the nominee’s mentorship and training environment on the development of young scientists and other highly qualified personnel in Canada and internationally.
