This award acknowledges and celebrates efforts made by students that have a sustainable impact on the learning environment and/or the experiences of students and faculty at the medical school. Efforts made by recipients are consistent with the “I care if you succeed” spirit championed by former Associate Dean Bob Englander, leave a legacy and acknowledge training efforts exceeding the bounds of academic preparation.
