Dean’s Tribute to Excellence in Education

Dean's Tribute to Excellence in Education

Please join us in celebrating the exceptional achievements of the Medical School community at the Dean’s Tribute to Excellence in Education.

May 4, 2022, 5:00 - 6:00pm via Zoom

Each year, the Medical School honors students, faculty, and community partners who exemplify our values and mission. Those selected are exceptional students, distinguished mentors, and driven individuals who strive to make a lasting difference in the community. Honorees are nominated by students or faculty members for their exemplary educational practices, scholarship, innovation, and research, as well as their commitment to educating Minnesota’s future physicians and outstanding students.

We gratefully acknowledge the donors who made these awards and scholarships possible, the committee members who reviewed applications and the staff who make this event possible.

To help personalize the impact of the University of Minnesota Medical School Education experience, we need your help. All students, trainees, faculty, and staff are invited to submit a short video (via Flipgrid) for the compilation by responding to one of these two prompts:

  • How has your educational experience here impacted the lives of people in the community during the pandemic? How has it impacted your life?

    • Click here to film and submit your video via Flipgrid
  • What do you appreciate most about your educational experience here (as a learner, mentor, preceptor, supervisor, staff member)?
    • Click here to film and submit your video via Flipgrid.

To ensure your video can be included, please submit by 5:00 pm, Wednesday, April 20.

Your participation is greatly appreciated. Please join us on May 4 to see the result!

For Flipgrid support, please see tips for troubleshooting camera and microphone access. Any other questions about the event, please contact Caroline Hilk at
