Dean's Excellence Awards

The Dean’s Excellence Awards are annual honors to recognize outstanding contributions made by faculty across the School of Medicine—one to a junior faculty member (instructor or assistant professor) and the other to a senior faculty member (associate professor or full professor)—in the areas of service, teaching, research, mentorship and diversity enhancement. 

Awardees are selected through a peer-review process facilitated by a member of the dean’s leadership team.
