Who Do You Admire?
Each year the Medical Alumni Association presents special awards during Reunion weekend. The litmus test is a simple question—Who do you admire? The Medical Alumni Association wants you to brag about your peers. Read more about the awards in the article "Who Do You Admire" in the Winter 2007 Alumni Journal.

The Distinguished Alumna/us Award
The Distinguished Alumna/us Award was established in 1966 to recognize the extraordinary achievements and outstanding service of individual alumni. This award is presented to an Alumna/us who graduated more than twenty years ago. Past Candidates have been chosen for academic achievement, research initiatives, humanitarian efforts, outstanding service to their community, dedicated work for the Association/Foundation, distinguished teaching and/or outstanding work in industry and private practice.
The Outstanding Young Alumna/us Award
The selection committee recognized that most recipients were toward the end of their careers and in 1995 created the Outstanding Young Alumna/us Award, to recognize physicians doing great things earlier in their careers. This award is presented to an Alumna/us who has graduated within the last twenty years. Candidates should have demonstrated excellence in medical practice or research, service to the community, and/or commitment to the Medical Alumni Association/Foundation.
The Medical Alumni Association announces the creation of a new award – The Humanitarian Award. Beginning at Reunion 2009, and in subsequent years in which there is a notable candidate, the Alumni Association will recognize alumni who exceed normal expectations in improving the lives of those in need with the Humanitarian Award.
