The Department of Medicine’s Excellence in Mentorship Award identifies exemplary faculty mentors within the DOM. The Excellence in Mentorship Award is conferred annually at the DOM Faculty Honors Reception in May.

Award Review Criteria and Process

DOM mentors will complete an online nomination form. Please identify and focus responses on a single mentee that you have trained and/or worked with at UAB during the last 5 years.

During the first level of review the mentee’s CV will be used by the Research Development Group (RDG) review committee to identify the mentee’s successes that are considered to be the result of quality mentorship. These successes will include but are not limited to:

  1. Publications, posters and presentations
  2. External or internal research funding
  3. Career advancement
  4. Local, national and international recognition

For the second level of review, the most meritorious mentees will be contacted and requested to submit a letter of support on their mentor’s behalf.
