School of Medicine Faculty Mentoring Award

This award honors faculty members who have made exceptional contributions to advancing the success of early career faculty at the School of Medicine.

The School of Medicine Faculty Mentoring Award recognizes that high quality faculty mentoring is essential to institutional excellence in research, teaching, and clinical practice. We seek to honor  mentors who model the behaviors, attitudes, values and ethics of excellence; challenge early career faculty and encourage innovation; sponsor and give exposure to early career  faculty at local, regional, national, and international levels; support early career faculty in pursuing independent research and practice, and support their goals, interests and commitments in those projects; and show concern for their junior colleagues’ personal well-being, as well as their advancement in academic medicine.  These mentors help to establish a culture of inclusion and foster an atmosphere of collaboration.

The Faculty Mentoring Award recognizes individual contributions as well as programmatic initiatives and programs that contribute to faculty mentoring.  One award will be made each year. Nominations are valid for two years.
