Award Description

The Arthur C. Guyton Educator of the Year Award supported by Elsevier recognizes a full-time faculty member of an accredited college or university and member of the APS who has independent evidence of: (1) excellence in classroom teaching over a number of years at the undergraduate, graduate, or professional levels; (2) commitment to the improvement of physiology teaching within the candidate's own institution; and (3) contributions to physiology education at the local community, national or international levels.

The typical nominee will have shown excellence in teaching and have made significant contributions in student advisement, graduate education, and/or curriculum design and reform at their institution. The activities that distinguish a candidate in the rankings include outreach activities at the state, national, or international level; contributions to education through APS activities; peer-reviewed educational journal articles; and widely disseminated publications such as commercially produced textbooks, lab manuals, or software. Unsuccessful nominees may be reconsidered for the award during the subsequent year with notification to the nominee and the nominator and receipt of updated information. The award winner is announced at the APS Business Meeting during Experimental Biology.
