Service award nominations sought by Feb. 28

If you have a coworker in the School of Medicine who deserves recognition for what he or she does, consider nominating that person for this year’s Dean’s Distinguished Service Award, the highest honor awarded to a medical school staff member.

The award, which includes a $1,000 cash prize, recognizes a full-time medical school employee with at least three years of continuous service who shows commitment to exceeding his or her job responsibilities, creates a positive working and learning environment and improves the community.

The school also is seeking nominations for research support (involving basic science and clinical research) and operations staff awards (involving administrative, facilities and teaching positions).

Those awards honor current employees who perform duties that exceed job expectations and demonstrate outstanding leadership and superior quality service. Each of those recipients will receive $500 in cash.

All winners will be recognized during the Length of Service Awards Program in June. For more information, visit and click on the Dean’s Distinguished Service Award link or see posters around the medical school.

All nominations are due Feb. 28.
