This award is granted annually by each General Surgery Residency Program. The Program Directors of each faculty of medicine in Canada will select one or two recipients based on demonstrated teaching excellence.  Each program may develop its own criteria by which to make the selection. Programs may consider faculty evaluations of resident teaching, student evaluations of resident teaching, and selection by other residents in the program. The CAGS Excellence in Teaching Award is presented annually at the Canadian Surgery Forum. Both the recipients and their program directors are strongly encouraged to attend.
