The Boonshoft School of Medicine Faculty Awards provide a unique opportunity to celebrate those who exhibit a strong commitment to teaching while serving as a role model to medical students, residents and colleagues.
The annual Faculty Awards highlight the importance of teaching within the medical school as well as recognizing those who have excelled in this responsibility. The awards are presented in the fall to our outstanding medical student teachers and mentors.
All BSOM faculty are eligible for nomination and may nominate a candidate for the award.
The Excellence in Medical Education Award recognizes those who have a significant impact on the medical student educational experience through their teaching, leadership, and engagement with the curriculum.
The Faculty Development Award recognizes faculty who have dedicated extensive time in developing themselves as medical student educators through faculty development.
** New ** Innovation in Medical Education Award
The Innovation in Medical Education Award recognizes outstanding achievements in medical student education by faculty members, particularly in the development of new, innovative educational initiatives or programs.
The Faculty Mentor Award is meant to recognize the process by which faculty serve as role models for each other, promoting the professional development of others and creating a supportive and positive working environment. In most cases individual junior faculty nominate candidates; two nominees are selected: a basic science faculty and a clinical faculty.
Teaching Excellence Award
The Teaching Excellence Award is chosen and presented by our students to faculty members who displayed outstanding professional skill and pride in discharging their instructional duties.
Voluntary Faculty Award
The Voluntary Faculty Award was formally given to recognize faculty who volunteer time and effort to further the mission of the Boonshoft School of Medicine without compensation. This award is offered to "volunteer faculty" who exhibit a strong commitment to teaching while serving as a role model to our students.
