Established in 2005, this biennial award is open to either a sonographer or physician member for their exceptional commitment and skill in teaching pediatric echocardiography, who has been a mentor to students and serves as a role model for the profession, and who fosters a sense of clinical excellence and research investigation in the individuals they teach. There is no age limit for this award. The Excellence in Teaching in Pediatrics Award is presented in June during ASE’s Annual Scientific Sessions.  Nominee must be a Fellow of the American Society of Echocardiography (FASE).
