Honors & Awards

Recognize members of our Medical School community for their outstanding work by nominating a faculty member, peer, student or mentor for a Medical School award or scholarship.

The Medical School recognizes and celebrates the members of our community who are making significant advances within our mission areas of research, education, and clinical care. We strive to attract a diverse pool of nominees for awards. We strive to sponsor and include nominations that reflect the broad range of identities in our Medical School, including race, ethnicity, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, disability, age, national origin, religious practice, and socioeconomic status. 

Award winners themselves, this committee is composed of professors who are active and productive researchers, educators, and clinicians. The committee is responsible for the screening, reviewing, and recommendation of award nominees for the Dean of the Medical School. This committee is responsible for internal University of Minnesota awards (University level), and all national and international awards. Internal Medical School education awards will continue to be managed by the Office of Medical Education.

Nomination Review Process
Please let the Office of Faculty Affairs (OFA) know if you have eligible faculty members for nomination for these prestigious prizes/awards by filling out this form. OFA will assist departments with assembling the materials for review by the Medical School Awards and Nominations Committee and the final submission material if any nominee(s) are selected to move forward.
