Clinical Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor), Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine & Dentistry
Early Career Educators Award 2011
A landmark achievement
I have been a fortunate recipient of “Excellence in Dental Education – Early Career Educator Award” through a unanimous vote by the Association of Dental Education in Europe (ADEE), on 09 September 2011. This is a unique aspect of the pivotal role ADEE is playing in promoting dental education in Europe and beyond. The excellence in dental education award provides an international recognition of the contributions of dental educators in both the early as well as mature stages of their careers from the highly prestigious platform of ADEE.
On a personal level, the award is a landmark achievement in my career and has been a source of immense motivation and encouragement for me. I feel the award has significantly strengthened my professional credentials and will continue to be an important highlight in my future career. Apart from being a prestigious personal accolade, this is also a momentous recognition for my Employer University. It is an international acknowledgement that the Plymouth University staff are providing an excellent teaching and learning experience for the dental students.
In the end, I would like to thank ADEE for providing a platform for professional recognition of dental educators in addition to the tremendous initiatives and work done by the organisation in promoting the cause of dental education.
