Call for nominations: Distinguished Medical Alumni Awards

The Distinguished Medical Alumni Awards are to be awarded at the annual Spring Medical Alumni Banquet. Nominations are due by Oct. 1.

One is for excellence in professional and community leadership and service (Community Category). The other is for exemplary contributions to the medical profession or to humankind of such importance as to merit national and international recognition (National Category).

This Committee also solicits nominations for two additional awards presented at the Spring Alumni Banquet. One is the Distinguished Service Award (DSA) to recognize non alumni who have contributed significant governmental and/or community leadership to the mission of the Medical school. The other is Distinguished Faculty Award (DFA) to recognize faculty excellence in teaching, contributions to medicine in the state, leadership in continuing education, and accomplishments in improving communications with the people of the state.

The Distinguished Medical Awards Selection Committee is now seeking nominations for the 2014 DMAA, DSA and DFA awards. Specific information on criteria, eligibility and nomination process for the awards is included in this mailing, as well as on the Medical Alumni Affairs' Awards website (http://www.med.unc.edu/alumni/alumni-awards), which also includes more general information about the awards and profiles of the 2013 award winners. We hope that faculty and alumni will consider nominating deserving individuals.
