Distinguished Alumni Awards
Every year, the UW School of Medicine Alumni Association recognizes exceptional alumni with a series of awards, presented during Reunion Weekend. We encourage UW School of Medicine alumni, faculty, staff and other professional colleagues to nominate alumni for one or more of the awards listed below.
Eligible alumni are those who received a degree from, or completed residency or fellowship training in, a program administered by the UW School of Medicine or one of its academic departments. In general, awards are given to living alumni.
The nomination period for the 2015 awards has closed. Nominations for the 2016 awards will be accepted until January 15, 2016.
The Distinguished Alumnus/Alumna Award recognizes an alumnus or alumna whose professional achievements and cumulative contributions have brought personal distinction, enhanced the general health and well-being of the public through professional practice or research, and brought honor to their alma mater. Up to two awards may be presented in this category – one to an individual whose career has focused on academic medicine or research, and one to an individual who has provided excellent clinical care throughout his or her career.
The Alumni Humanitarian Award honors an alumnus or alumna who embodies the ideals of UW Medicine and whose career reflects an ongoing commitment to serve others through the practice of medicine, or whose research has contributed to greater communal good.
The Alumni Service Award recognizes an alumnus or alumna whose dedicated and determined efforts have benefited the University of Washington School of Medicine and/or the University of Washington School of Medicine Alumni Association and/or his/her community.
The Alumni Early Achievement Award honors an alumnus or alumna who graduated within the last 20 years and has excelled in his or her career, making significant contributions to public health through clinical care, medical science, research, humanitarianism or administrative activities.
