Award Nominations

The Renaissance School of Medicine is excited to announce the open call for nominations for the the 2021 Faculty Awards

It is time again to recognize the excellent work being done by our faculty in the areas of teaching, clinical service, research, and mentoring — all critical aspects of the mission of the School of Medicine.

Nominations will be accepted through midnight, July 12, 2021. Awards will be presented at our Annual Faculty Awards Ceremony in the Fall 2021. Award recipients will have their name added to the award recipient plaque in RSOM and receive a $1000 (except where noted).

Eligibility

All School of Medicine faculty members are eligible for consideration. Faculty members at our close affiliates are eligible for consideration. Please note, past recipients are not eligible for consideration in the same category in which they previously received an award. 

Applicant nominations are considered for three consecutive years. Candidates who were nominated in 2019 do not need to reapply for the same award in 2021. However, a new application can be submitted if there is additional evidence to support the candidate's nomination.
