2015 Dean’s Awards: One week left to nominate deserving faculty
This is the final week for Medical School leaders and faculty to nominate their colleagues for the Dean’s Awards Program. Now in its 15th year, the program recognizes faculty who demonstrate exceptional accomplishment in the areas of teaching, research, clinical care, innovation and community service.
The deadline for nominations for the following faculty awards is May 1, 2015:
The Lifetime Achievement Award in Medical Education — This award honors a lifetime of achievement in all types of education in which our faculty are engaged: undergraduate medical education, graduate medical education, doctoral and postdoctoral education in research, and continuing medical education.
The Basic Science Research Award — The award recognizes a scientist or group of scientists with outstanding contributions to the basic biomedical research of the Medical School.
The Clinical and Health Services Research Award — Nominations will be accepted for faculty in any rank on any track who are making outstanding contributions in the areas of clinical and translational research and health services research.
The Distinguished Faculty Lectureship Award in Biomedical Research — Ideal candidates demonstrate extraordinary national and international contributions as a research leader with pivotal discoveries that have wide-ranging impact for the advancement of scientific knowledge.
The Outstanding Clinician Award — The award, often given to more than one faculty member, recognizes exemplary performance of a practicing clinician and can include those with outstanding service as medical program or ambulatory care unit directors, developers of clinical care management programs or new care models, as well as innovations in institutional quality improvement initiatives. Nominees for this award are considered for the Lifetime Achievement Award in Clinical Care.
The Innovation and Commercialization Award recognizes a faculty member or group of faculty members who have developed a new research method, technology or innovative service that will radically improve or transform patient health.
The Community Service Award — Candidates for this award make outstanding contributions to the community — locally, nationally or globally.
The 2015 winners will be honored in the fall during the annual Faculty and Staff Awards Dinner.
