Awards

The CRMEC co-ordinates the regional nominations for the national CPMEC awards. Award nominations commence in April each year and are open for JMOs and Clinical Educators.  Winners are announced at the Australia and New Zealand Prevocational Medical Education Forum.

JMO of the Year

Do you know a JMO who has made an exceptional contribution to teaching and learning as a prevocational trainee?  Maybe you have noticed a local JMO making special contributions to education and training such as project work, publications, posters, presentations to the international, national and State conferences.  Keep that person in mind for nomination for a local or national award as JMOs of the Year!

Nominations are reviewed by the Canberra Region Medical Education Council (CRMEC) and an applicant is selected as the ACT JMO of the Year.  This award is recognised in the local region. Regional winners are forwarded to Confederation of Postgraduate Medical Education Council (CPMEC) to be selected as finalists for the National JMO of the Year. Winners are announced annually at the ANZPMEF Conference.

Nominations for 2022 will open mid-2022. Announcements will be made in the CRMEC newsletter.
