For more than two decades AFPC has developed and administered an Awards Program to recognize outstanding research, educational and service contributions. These prestigious awards recognize career researchers and educators, new investigators, undergraduate and graduate students, and special groups or individuals contributing to the success of AFPC and Canadian academic pharmacy. Awards recipients present their work at the AFPC Annual Conference and receive their award at the AFPC Banquet. The AFPC Awards Booklet containing the awards descriptions, eligibility criteria and application deadlines, along with archived current and past awards recipients are provided in this section of the AFPC website.
Information for Faculty | Awards and Nominations Book for 2012-2013
Please note that the method of submitting applications for award competitions continues to be by email to the Executive Director. PDF format is to be used for the files. This process has worked quite successfully over the past few years.
The awards booklet contains a new faculty award called the AFPC Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada Award for Excellence in Research or Innovation in Assessment of Competence. The application deadline for this award is March 1, 2013. Co-sponsorship funding has not been received for two awards: the AFPC New Investigator Research Award and the AFPC Award for Excellence in Education. After some discussion it was decided to proceed with these two awards in 2012-13; however, there will not be any AFPC financial reward available (i.e., reimbursement for travel, hotel, etc). The award recipient will receive a certificate and be recognized at the awards recognition banquet.AFPC has a financial policy concerning awards. For co-sponsored awards we will require a confirmation from the co-sponsor before the award is given. We anticipate receiving confirmations before the award deadlines and will notify faculty and students through AFPC Councilors if sponsorships are not renewed.
