Faculty Professionalism Award

The Faculty Professionalism Award recognizes a full-time (at least .50 FTE) School of Medicine faculty member who has served as a role model for professionalism, as defined in the School of Medicine Rules.  According to the Rules, “Under the umbrella of professionalism lies an extended set of responsibilities that includes: civil and courteous behavior; respect for teachers, students, supporting staff and colleagues; service to the community; dedication to lifelong learning; and, for clinicians, empathy, altruism, compassion and other attitudes and behaviors which represent the core traditions of the profession of medicine.”

Faculty members are also expected to exhibit academic and institutional citizenship by contributing to the teaching, service, and administrative activities of their department and the School.  The Faculty Senate would like to encourage nominations of all full-time School of Medicine faculty members at all ranks, including women and underrepresented minorities.

The winner of this award is honored at the School of Medicine Matriculation Ceremony in August of each year, and their name is placed on the permanent plaque that is displayed in the School of Medicine.
