About the Norma Berryhill Distinguished Lectureship:

The dean and advisory committee of the School of Medicine established the Norma Berryhill Lectureship in Sept. 1984.  The lectureship has two essential components:  (1) a lecture to be given annually by a tenured or tenure track member of the faculty of the Medical School; and (2) a convocation of the Medical School to be held at the time of the lecture, at which new faculty members will be recognized.

The aims of the lectureship are twofold.  First, the selection of the Norma Berryhill Lecturer is meant to honor a member of the faculty whose accomplishments have added distinction to the Medical School.

Second, the convocation is intended to further a sense of community within the Medical School.  Because Mrs. Berryhill was a major factor in developing this sense, the lectureship was named in her honor.
