Teaching Award

Good teaching should be rewarded! For this reason, the Faculty of Medicine annually awards teaching prizes to particularly committed lecturers in the courses of study in medicine and dentistry. All lecturers at the Faculty of Medicine can be nominated. The prizes are awarded by a jury.

Up to three prizes of €5,000 each will be awarded. Norminations are possible for the teachers of the study programs Human Medicine and Dentistry as well as the master study programs Translational Neurosciences, Molecular Biomedicine and Toxicology. The prizes will be made available to the award winners via the Office of the Vice Dean for Teaching and Study Quality.

The right of nomination lies with the students. Proposals from the Medical Student Council or from groups with at least 15 students of medicine or dentistry (nomination application) will be considered. Completed applications must be signed by all nominating students and submitted to the Office of the Vice Dean for Teaching and Study Quality. If personal evaluation results are available, they will be attached to the application by the Office of the Vice Dean for Teaching and Study Quality.

The decision on the awarding of the prizes is made by a commission consisting of the members of the Commission for Quality Improvement in Teaching and Studies and the Dean.

  • Proposal deadline: Until Janurary 31st 2021
