Clinical faculty spend the majority of their time caring for patients at CU Anschutz and our affiliates. Despite their critical role in patient care and the success of the department at large, opportunities to highlight the work they do – or the best among them – remain limited. To meet this need, the Department of Medicine proposes to establish the Clinical Excellence Society (CES) for faculty members who have >50% appointments in Medicine at CU Anschutz or any of our affiliates. The vision of the CES is to recognize, in an ongoing fashion, faculty who are judged by their peers and leaders to exude excellence towards their patients and colleagues.
Through a rigorous nomination and application process, division heads identify deserving clinicians and work alongside these nominees to produce a dossier and application for induction. This year, the program will launch May 1, with applications due July 21. Review and notification will occur in the fall, followed by an inaugural induction ceremony in the spring of 2024.
Dr. Sunita Sharma, vice chair for faculty development and mentorship, and Dr. Christine Jones, associate vice chair for mentorship, support Dr. Chopra, chair of medicine, in managing this important initiative.
If you have any questions regarding the program or RFA process, please contact DOMCES@cuanschutz.edu.
The Department of Medicine (DOM) requests nominations for induction into the inaugural cohort of the CU DOM Clinical Excellence Society (CES).
Nominations must be put forward by division heads. No more than two (2) nominations will be allowed from each division. Nomination of APP, MD and faculty members from affiliates are encouraged and welcomed. We strongly advise division heads to institute a transparent process for selecting nominees that solicits input from division leaders and faculty across affiliate sites.
Much like election into national societies such as the ASCI or AAP, induction into the CES is an honor and will be extremely competitive. It will not be uncommon for the same individual to be nominated for multiple cycles for induction or to not be selected despite two rounds of nomination. Therefore, candidates should view being nominated as an honor and privilege, in and of itself.
All applications are due to the Chair’s office by July 21, 2023
