College of Medicine faculty and students were honored October 25 for what Dean Deborah German described as “excellence in the most important jobs we do as a medical school – teaching and learning.”
Faculty awards – for core and volunteer/affiliated faculty — were presented for outstanding achievement in all of the medical school’s missions – education, clinical, research and service. The majority of student awards are given at a graduation award ceremony days before students receive their M.D. degrees. The three student awards given recently were for those who had completed their first and second years of the curriculum.
