Criteria for Faculty Awards

Stanford Pediatrics DRIVE Award

Diversity, Respect, and Inclusion are Vital for Excellence in a thriving medical school community.  

Each year, the Stanford Pediatrics DRIVE Award will recognize a faculty member who has made exceptional contributions and accomplishments in fostering a diverse and inclusive community in the Department of Pediatrics.  Such might include developing models to advance diversity, achieving outcomes, recruitment and retention efforts, supporting promotion, teaching, research, multi-cultural programming, cultural competency, community outreach activities, or other related initiatives or achievements.


Advocacy Award

Each year, the Stanford Department of Pediatrics Advocacy Award seeks to acknowledge the exemplary work of a faculty member who advocate for his/her patients and families.  

Examples include connecting patients with community resources, working to get needed services for patients, advocating for research funding and ensuring that essential medications are available to all patients. Advocacy activities can also include raising awareness about important pediatric health issues in the media, fighting to reduce health disparities through engagement in the community, and educating elected officials on child health topics.


Early Career Clinical Excellence Award

Each year the Department will recognize one of its faculty for early career clinical excellence. This is defined as achievements within five years of the completion of training. Criteria used to determine clinical excellence are broad, and examples include, but are not limited to, clinical excellence, clinical leadership in quality, safety, PI program development, leadership in innovative clinical program development and implementation or development of new approaches to clinical care.


Mid/Senior Career Clinical Excellence Award

Each year the Department will recognize one of its faculty for mid-senior career clinical excellence. Clinical excellence at this stage of a faculty career requires demonstrating leadership in clinical improvements above and beyond the faculty member's current role and responsibilities.

Medical Education Scholarship Award

Each year the Department will recognize one of its faculty in an area of medical education scholarship for her/his scientific achievement in the past year. Typically, this achievement will be a peer-reviewed publication or novel intervention, but other achievements may be recognized if they can be demonstrated to be pertinent to advancing medical education.
