Medical Alumni Association Awards

Each year The Medical Alumni Association Awards Committee selects alumni to receive awards in four distinct categories (see descriptions below). The Medical Alumni Association Awards were created to give appropriate recognition to medical and Ph.D./M.S. alumni who have been outstanding in their service to the College, the community at large or in their career accomplishments. With over 4,500 medical alumni, we need your help in identifying the outstanding members among us.
