  • Nominee must have completed residency within the past 10 years.
  • Evidence of achievements, innovation, and dedication to academic emergency medicine through teaching and education-based scholarly activity, especially as related to simulation.
  • National involvement and presence in academic emergency medicine (e.g., through SAEM or other national organization committees, research or scholarship consortiums, or advocacy groups).
  • Activities demonstrating commitment to simulation based education.

Note: Any faculty nominee who took significant time away from academic medicine may be considered with explanation of lapsed time. Please include letter of explanation of time lapse if greater than 10 years from date of residency completion, but still considered “early” career in terms of accomplishments.
