Larner College of Medicine Alumni Association Awards
Each year The Larner College of Medicine Alumni Association Awards Committee selects alumni to receive awards in four distinct categories (see descriptions below). The LCOM Alumni Association Awards give recognition to medical and PhD/MS alumni who have been outstanding in their service to the College, the community at large, or their career accomplishments. Strong consideration is given to nominees who demonstrate outstanding commitment to equity in medicine, reflecting the College's mission "to benefit Vermont and the world through engagement with diverse communities."
