This award is given by vote of the junior and senior medical classes to hospital Resident Physicians who best exemplify clinical excellence and dedication to teaching. Each November marks that time of year to recognize individual faculty, housestaff, rural health preceptors, and volunteer physicians for their particularly noteworthy accomplishments as teachers.
Outstanding teaching is an integral part of the College of Medicine's mission and is deserving of significant recognition. These awards recognize faculty members for teaching excellence and their ability to encourage intellectual excitement, inspire the discovery of knowledge, and foster critical inquiry in the classroom, or lab.
Also recognized are administrative and clinical support staff who have made a valuable and appreciated impact on college life through their interactions with students, faculty and others.
