Alumni Awards

Each year, the Washington University Medical Center Alumni Association has the distinct pleasure of honoring a select group of alumni, faculty members, and former residents and fellows whose professional achievements, service to community and dedication to our institution are noteworthy.

Alumni, both medical and house staff, and faculty are invited to nominate accomplished graduates, former house staff, or faculty of the School of Medicine for one of four prestigious awards.
