Introduction and Judging Criteria

The New Zealand Medical Teaching Awards aim to recognise:

a) the positive impact that many doctors have made through the World Medical Council Declaration of Geneva; “I will share my medical knowledge for the benefit of the patient and the advancement of healthcare” & “I will give to my teachers, colleagues and students the respect and gratitude that is their due" and;  

b) to encourage the development of a positive clinical teaching culture and environment for the benefit of students, staff and ultimately patients.
