Distinguished Service Awards

The Distinguished Service Award is given for particularly laudable career accomplishment with substantial contribution and/or service to Washington University Medical Center.

Eligibility: Any present or former member of the Washington University Medical Center family, not necessarily a graduate of the School of Medicine, is eligible to receive the award. Faculty and house officers are included. The current chancellor of the university, executive vice chancellor for medical affairs and dean of the medical school are excluded.

WUMCAA recognizes members of the Washington University Medical Center family who have achieved significant accomplishment in both their career and service or contribution to medical center.
