Leadership in Medical Education
The Department of Medicine’s commitment to academic medicine programs is reflected in committee membership and leadership: Admissions Committee; Educational Policy Committee; Faculty Council; Personnel Action Committee; Tenure Committee; Affirmative Action Committee; Committee on Committees; Faculty Grievance Committee; Library Committee; Patent Policy Committee; Student Affairs Committee; Scientific Council; Women’s Faculty Committee; and Graduate Council. One faculty member in the Division of Rheumatology is Associate Dean for Graduate Medical Education, and Department of Medicine faculty are members of the Graduate Medical Education Committee.
Numerous UMMS medical education awards are garnered annually by DoM faculty members, in recent years to include: Outstanding Clinical Medical Educators, Outstanding Basic Science Medical Educator; the Lamar Soutter Award; the Women’s Faculty Award; the Community Faculty Educator Award; and the Emeritus Award for Excellence in Medical Education.
The DoM provides incentive awards for Medical Education effort and excellence to several faculty members.
Departmental awards included the Sarah L. Stone Award to one young faculty member and one resident, and its Educational Achievement Award to three faculty members.
