Alpha Omega Alpha Robert J. Glaser Distinguished Teacher Awards

The Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) Robert J. Glaser Distinguished Teacher Awards were established by the AOA medical honor society in 1988 to provide national recognition to faculty members who have distinguished themselves in medical student education. The award is named for long-time AOA executive secretary Robert J. Glaser, MD.

About the Award

The Alpha Omega Alpha Robert J. Glaser Distinguished Teacher Awards recognize outstanding contributions to medical education made by gifted teachers. Up to four awards will be granted each year.

Each awardee will receive a $10,000 prize. The awardee's nominating institution will receive a grant of $2,500 for teaching activities, and, if the nominating institution has an AOA chapter, the chapter will receive a $1,000 grant for support of its activities.

Each medical school in the United States and Canada may nominate one faculty member each year, if the institution has not had a recipient of this award in the past three years. The nomination is made by the dean.
