IMP employee nominated for prestigious UVic award

A member of the Island Medical Program is in the running for one of UVic’s most prestigious employee awards: the President’s Extraordinary Service Award (PESA) for Innovation.

Stacey Taylor is the program administrator for the Integrated Community Clerkship (ICC) site in Duncan, B.C. She’s been nominated for contributing positive change and progress at the university.

“This nomination shows that administrators are recognized as integral to the Faculty of Medicine,” said Taylor, who’s worked for the IMP since 2009 and helped plan and implement the ICC site in Duncan.

“To know I’ve had a positive, lasting impression on my students means the world to me,” she added.

Taylor was nominated for the award by Dr. Maggie Watt, the ICC program director for UBC’s MD undergraduate program, and Lynne Fisher, the IMP’s Year 3 & 4 program manager. Both praised Taylor’s unwavering commitment to excellence.

“Stacey, with her passion and high-quality service, has been a huge contributor to the program’s outstanding reputation,” said Watt. “She’s a big reason why, year after year, students rank Duncan their number one ICC site.”

The winner of the Innovator Award and of other PESA categories will be announced on Wednesday, May 2, 2018, from 3:00 to 4:30pm at a formal ceremony. All UVic staff and faculty are welcome. For more information and to register, click here.
